Mark Mieto, Chief Administrative Officer of the City of Greater Sudbury, has announced the appointment of Tim Beadman as Acting General Manager of Emergency Services.

Effective immediately, Beadman will oversee emergency medical services, fire services and emergency planning and preparedness for the City of Greater Sudbury.

Doug Wuksinic, the city?s General Manager of Corporate Services, had been performing the duties on an interim basis since the spring of 2002.

?Mr. Wuksinic has done an excellent job leading emergency services over the past several months and I commend him for his efforts,? said Mieto.
?The budget discussions that are set to begin, however, will require Mr. Wuksinic?s full attention. The budget is an important process that affects all departments in the city.?

Beadman is a native of Cochrane with more than 20 years of experience in the field of emergency services. He has been Director of Emergency Medical Services since 1999 when the municipality assumed the administration of land ambulance services.

Prior to joining the city, Beadman held a number of senior management positions with the Ministry of Long Term Health and Long Term Care in the Emergency Health Services Branch.
