Emergency preparedness

At ARC, we take a proactive approach to emergency planning to ensure our people are prepared to safely respond to incidents in the event they occur. Each of our operating areas maintain an Area ERP that outlines how to respond to incidents while prioritizing the safety of the public, our people, the environment, and ARC’s assets.

Because safety is our number one priority, we provide extensive and regular training to our operations teams to ensure they are familiar with our Emergency Response Plans (ERP), knowledgeable about their role, and ready to take action when necessary.

As part of our emergency readiness planning, we regularly conduct full-scale and table-top exercises to familiarize teams with our response procedures, evaluate the effectiveness of our plans, and ensure our people are equipped to provide a coordinated response.

  • All leaders on our operations teams receive Incident Command System (ICS) 200 training to ensure they are prepared to effectively establish command and initiate elements of ICS.
  • We have implemented wildfire notification software that pulls real-time data to provide regular updates on the status of active wildfires to keep our operational leaders informed if a fire approaches within 30 km of our operating areas.
  • We have begun advanced planning with our operations in preparation for potential wildfire this coming season, providing important information for leaders to share with their teams and links to helpful resources to ensure all responders are adequately prepared.

Our goal is ‘Zero Harm’ to employees, contractors, and the communities in which we operate. By safely executing our work, conducting regular risk assessments, and providing ongoing training to our teams, we strive to prevent incidents from occurring and respond effectively in the event of an emergency.
