As part of our ongoing commitment to safety and emergency preparedness, we conducted an emergency response exercise at our Sumas Terminal in Abbotsford, BC on June 26 and 27, 2018. Our staff had the opportunity to practice Sumas Terminal's Fire Pre-Plan and deploy equipment in response to a simulated storage tank fire. 

Staff responded to the simulated fire and practiced the deployment of fire-extinguishing systems, including a portable foam cannon to discharge water onto a tank at the terminal. Other participants in the exercise included Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and Chilliwack Fire Department.

Regular training and exercises are integral to our safety and emergency preparedness program to ensure a quick and efficient response in the unlikely event of an emergency.
