Members of the Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Department had an opportunity for three days of extensive fire fighting training related to industrial fires, with the local department attending a joint stakeholder training exercise at two industrial sites around the city from August 10-12.

The focus for the training was at the Pembina and AltGas LPG terminal facilities, with the two companies organizing the event.

As part of their three days on site, the fire fighters were able to familiarize themselves with the layout of each facility as well as what equipment and fire suppression systems are available. 

They were also able to conduct tactical pre planning towards any potential event at either of the facilities.

You can review the PRFD notes from their Facebook page, which also includes a number of photos from the training session.

The early August program was just the latest in training events put on for local fire fighters across the Northwest, last month we outlined the travels of members from Port Edward as they took in a similar event in Terrace.
