Preparing for Not If, but When
Over the past couple of weeks, the Loomex Team travelled to Northern Ontario to conduct emergency training for numerous airports and municipalities one of which was Greenstone. Unfortunately 3 days following our visit they were forced to put their training into action as a state of emergency was declared due to forest fires threatening the safety of the community and those living in it.
Our CEO, Trent Gervais often begins his training sessions by saying “We are not preparing for IF something happens, but WHEN something happens.” We were happy to be able to be a part of Greenstone’s emergency preparedness training and feel they were well equipped and trained to take on this unwelcome disaster.
