Trans Mountain Conducts Full-Scale Emergency Exercise at Westridge Marine Terminal with a Hybrid Incident Command Post – Trans Mountain

Today, Trans Mountain conducted a full-scale emergency response exercise to demonstrate Trans Mountain’s ability to effectively manage a spill response event should one occur in Burrard Inlet at Westridge Marine Terminal. The drill included a coordinated response with more than 150 virtual and in-person participants from two Indigenous communities and 10 agencies, including the Canada Energy Regulator, Canadian Coast Guard, Transport Canada and Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC), working collaboratively to ensure an efficient and effective response.

The full-scale exercise provided an opportunity for response personnel to demonstrate and practice both land and water-based training, including the deployment of equipment and response vessels within Burrard Inlet at Westridge Marine Terminal. This exercise also provided an opportunity to practice the implementation of the Westridge Marine Terminal Emergency Response Plan under COVID-19 safety protocols.
