May 28, 2019

The Town of Coaldale partnered with CP Rail Tuesday morning to conduct a mock emergency exercise.

The exercise, a full-scale trail derailment with hazardous materials was designed to allow the Town to test its emergency management planning and training.

“These types of exercises are also common practice for municipalities as they are a legislated requirement to ensure the Emergency Management Program is maintained,” said Clayton Rutberg, Deputy Fire Chief of Public Safety for Coaldale.
