TRANSCAER® In the News


Leaders in Safety - The TRANSCAER® Conference

November 14 2014

In September 2014, Northwest Tank Lines hosted a Transcaer safety conference in Southeast Calgary...


A one-half acre site of CN’s rail yard was set up with six different hazmat training stations providing diverse training for all the attendees.

Some of the stations included: CP Rail’s hands-on chemical foam spraying activity, chemical distributors Univar and Brenntag with many hazmat containers, 5 different chemical producers (Dow, Nova, ERCO, Canexus, and Agrium) with their emergency response units, Quantum Murray bringing various pieces of emergency equipment, 4 government regulatory agencies holding classroom sessions, and Northwest running an exhibit regarding safety features of three different chemical and compressed gas tank trailers.

Over the two-day TRANSCAER® conference, we hosted 250 community first responders and various industry shippers and customers – what a turnout!
