Annual two-day training and assessment of LPG and Flammable Liquids Response Teams
ERAC requires annual mandatory two-day training and assessment sessions for all LPG and Flammable Liquids Response Teams. This year our teams have trained in:
- St. Thomas Ontario at Dowler-Karn
- Ernestown Ontario at Gibson Gas Liquids
- Valleyfield Quebec at Pro Transfert
- Edmonton Alberta at the Keyera Diluent Terminal and the CP rail yard
- Saint John New Brunswick at the RST Bayshore facility
- Surrey BC at the Canwest rail facility
- Winnipeg Manitoba at the CN rail yard
- Richmond British Columbia at the CN rail yard
- Kamloops British Columbia at the CN rail yard
Training locations with rail, truck and stationary tanks are important in helping ensure our responders are ready for any incident. The Remedial Measures Advisors, Technical Advisors and Response Teams thank these companies for stepping forward. Their onsite employees share their experience and knowledge with ERAC responders and also learn from our responders.
Searching for Winnipeg LPG rail training venue
ERAC is currently looking for a training venue in the Winnipeg area with LPG rail installations where the Manitoba Response Team can practice for one day this fall. Please contact Don Merriam (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you can help in any way. This is a great opportunity to meet the responders and witness the work they can do for you in the event of an emergency.
