Emergency Management

Staying prepared takes teamwork, co-ordination and an effective response plan. The session will discuss some of the approaches TransCanada takes to always be prepared for anything.


TransCanada’s Emergency Management Program applies to all aspects of Emergency Preparedness and Response. It means doing whatever is required to ensure the safety and security of the public, regardless of the cause of the emergency or how it occurred. The purpose of the system is to protect the health, safety or welfare of people, or to limit damage to property, company operations and the environment.

This presentation will give a brief overview of TransCanada Pipeline’s Emergency Management program.
