Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue, Port Authority to host waterfront response exercise on Tuesday

It was pretty quiet along the Prince Rupert Harbour front today.
That won't be the case on Tuesday when an Emergency Responder exercise 
takes place from the Atlin Terminal to Northland Terminal area

Prince Rupert's waterfront will be active exercise site next week, as an area from the Atlin Terminal to Northland Terminal takes on the role of response site for an Emergency Response training program.

With Tuesday September 20th making for a joint training opportunity for the Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Department and members of the Prince Rupert Port Authority response program.  As result the area along the waterfront in the Cow Bay Area to Northland will be closed off to the public until the afternoon.

The public that may be in the waterfront area from the 9AM to 1PM period of the training exercise are asked to maintain a safe distance to allow for the emergency responders to work as required.

Both the Prince Rupert Port Authority and the City have provided some additional details on what will be taking place through their Social media streams. 

The main theme one of awareness for the public that there will smoke generators and mannequins  in the water as part of the exercise, something that would surely be alarming for those wandering by without knowledge to the training program underway
