Table Top in Bruderheim Huge Success

Over 60 emergency management professionals representing 27 organizations participated in the NR CAER table top exercise in Bruderheim on June 4th. The scenario was a train derailment (in town) with hazardous material release and involved simulating evacuation of the entire town. Participants included:

  • NRCAER member municipalities: Bruderheim, Lamont County, City of Fort Saskatchewan and Strathcona County
  • NRCAER member industries and transporters: Access Pipeline, Agrium, Air Liquide, Aux Sable, Canexus, CP Rail, Dow, Guardian Chemicals, Keyera, Nova, NWR, Petrogas, Plains Midstream, Shell and Sherritt
  • Participating partner agencies were: AEMA, AER, AHS, ASSIST, CN, Environment Canada, Parkland County and RCMP

“Our goals for the exercise were to develop skills and capabilities, build relationships between responders, and lay the ground work for NRCAER’s live exercise to take place in Bruderheim in September,” said Brenda Gheran, Executive Director. “We had great involvement, and the day was a huge success.”
