Kamloops Fire and Rescue is preparing just in case there is ever an oil spill from the Trans Mountain pipeline.
KFR Chief Mike Adams says, he, along with the senior management group met with partners at Kinder Morgan.
Adams says, both sides are planning further joint training and full scale exercises.
“I don’t think you can ever be too prepared and that’s why we continue to try and make sure our program and our response and that’s why we try to work with our industry partners. Understand what they’re expectations are. Our expectations of them and how we can cooperate in the event there is an emergency response required.”
Would Kamloops be compensated if it responded with city equipment?
“We have provisions in our bylaw for cost recovery for equipment and time.”
Adams says, the meetings will continue.
