Breaking News: Hon. Stockwell Day, PC Appointed as Chairman of The Board of First Responder Technologies Inc.

First Responder Technologies Inc., a developer of WiFi-based technologies for detecting concealed weapons and for deterring mass shooting and terror attacks involving concealed weapons, is pleased to announce the appointment of Hon. Stockwell Day, PC as the new independent Chairman of the Company’s board of directors, effective immediately. Mr. Day is succeeding Mr. Kulwant (Kal) Malhi , who served as Chairman since 2019. Mr. Malhi will also step down from his position as a director.  Mr. Howard Gutman, former Ambassador of the United States of America to Belgium , will replace Mr. Day as Head of the Company’s advisory council. 

Robert Delamar , the Company’s CEO commented, “Mr. Day brings a wealth of external and internal experience to the role:  externally, through his distinguished career in public service, including his time in office spent as Canada’s former Minister of Public Safety, former Vice-Chair of Canada’s Parliamentary Subcommittee on Human Rights, and Chair of the Cross-Cultural Roundtable on Security; and internally, through his service as the former Head of the Company’s advisory council, among which he led a team of board members, executives and advisors in the conceptualization, drafting and adoption of the Company’s Statement of Values.”

Mr. Day commented, “I am honoured to take on this role.  With incidents of shootings and terrorist attacks in public, commercial and residential spaces on the rise, the implementation of concealed weapons detection technology solutions has become a necessity for governments, law enforcement, security agencies, landlords and homeowners.  While these solutions have the real potential to increase public safety, they must be balanced with a commitment to privacy so that citizens may go about their business without fear of racial, religious or socio-economic profiling; personal intrusion, including loss of liberty and privacy; and/or powerful, rapidly changing technology falling into the wrong hands.  I believe the Company, in the design of its products, and through the Company’s Statement of Values (key provisions of which have been made contractually binding through the terms of the Company’s reseller agreements), is committed to balancing these competing interests, and I believe these products represent the possibility of a real change in the way cities, commercial premises and residences are protected in the future, and safeguarded from the threats posed by armed criminals and terrorists.”

“The Company wishes to thank Mr. Malhi for his service on the Company’s board, and looks forward to receiving his continued strategic advice and guidance in his continued role as the Company’s founder,” Mr. Delamar added.
