The Prairie Region TRANSCAER Committee would like to invite you to the 2018 TRANSCAER Event in Winnipeg.
Attached is the Event Poster which details the training that is being offered this year.
The daytime classes (08:00 – 16:00) have been fully booked already. However, we would like to extend an invite to Fire Chiefs, their Deputies and/or Training Officers to attend the full daytime classes as an observer. As an observer, you will be exposed to the training and the scenarios, and have the opportunity to discuss with the CN, CP, and BNSF Railway Dangerous Goods Officers about training opportunities that you would like your departments to get involved with.
Please contact Steven Santelli or Tom Bozyk regarding attending the daytime classes as an observer.
The evening classes (May 23rd and May 24th, 18:00 – 21:00) are available to any first responder.
Please complete the attached form or e-mail Steven.Santelli@cn.ca with the number of attendees attending the evening class(es).
Please note that all submissions to attend the evening classes must be in by May 1, 2018.
