Emergency Management Program
ARC’s Emergency Management Program is focused on developing quality Emergency Response Plans (ERPs), and training our personnel to properly activate the ERPs in order to promptly respond in the unlikely event of an emergency. ARC’s ERPs are updated annually in an effort to confirm the information included is both accurate and compliant with all regulatory requirements of our operating jurisdictions. Protecting the public, our employees and the environment are focal points that are stressed throughout ARC’s ERPs.
As per the National Energy Board, Order MO-006-2016 and MO-002-2017, ARC’s Emergency Procedures Manual and Emergency Management Program have been made public and can be accessed by clicking on the links below.
