Building on a strong track record of safety first, Bruce Power has formed a new integrated emergency response organization combining all of its emergency response capability into a single organization.

“While our focus continues to be on delivering safe and reliable operations, we’ve always striven to be an industry leader in safety and emergency preparedness, said Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Over the past 10 years, we’ve developed an emergency response capability that has been industry leading,”

The new organization will see Bruce Power’s security, fire and emergency services teams join forces to form the Bruce Power Emergency and Protective Services Division.

“This merger enhances our already impressive response capabilities as these are all highly-effective organizations which are well rated by our regulator,” said Hawthorne. “Combining them will only serve to improve our depth when responding to any situation.”

This type of organization is considered a best practice and aligns with provincial and federal agencies who adopted the integrated emergency response model following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
