Onsite Emergency Response Team
Our Saint John Refinery, Canaport Terminal and East Saint John Terminal each have onsite emergency response teams, with a total of over 200 members.
Our emergency response personnel are facility operators that have extensive training in industrial fire fighting, through Lambton College in Sarnia, Ontario and at the University of Nevada, as well as refinery-specific confined space rescue training conducted onsite. Approximately 26 members are on duty per shift, and are fully equipped with an onsite "fast attack" truck, fire truck, incident command vehicle and other vehicles to respond to a variety of emergencies, including fire, leaks, spills or medical incidents.
At our refinery, this team is also complemented by onsite nurses and a trained medical response team, who are prepared to address medical emergencies of our 1,200 person workforce.
