Safety is our number one value

Our goal is for our pipeline and energy facilities to operate safely every day so that the public, our workforce and the environment aren’t affected by an incident involving our assets. Safety is, and always will be, our number one value.

Prepared for anything

With a goal of zero safety incidents at hundreds of facilities in three countries, staying prepared takes teamwork, co-ordination and an effective response plan. As part of that plan, in 2020 we conducted 170 emergency management program exercises across our entire network. These simulations allowed our own personnel to work with local first-responders to hone our skills and develop communications protocols in the unlikely event of a serious incident.

These exercises play a key role in developing strong relationships within our communities while helping us both to gain an understanding of each other’s roles and responsibilities.

We learned a lot from TC Energy’s professionalism and the way they conduct their exercises. [They’re] always a big factor in our control group meetings. Every time we have a meeting or emergency exercise in the town of Kapuskasing, they’re a very good contributing partner – for their expertise and resources.”

Emergency response plans

We believe every incident is preventable and continuously strive toward our goal of realizing zero safety incidents. While incidents are rare, being prepared to respond safely and rapidly is something we train for year-round.

Our priorities are always the safety of the public, landowners, first responders, employees and contractors and the environment. Our robust emergency response plans are focused on quickly and effectively responding to emergencies, mitigating any impacts that may have occurred to public safety, property or the environment in a timely manner.

Although we consult emergency services during the development of our Emergency Response Plans, we also encourage communities to review these documents if they are interested in better understanding the TC Energy Emergency Management Program.
