New Brunswick Office of the Fire Marshal, in partnership with DRDC’s Canadian Safety & Security Program, CyberNB, the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association, and Emergency Solutions International (ESI) Collaborate on Initiative to Ensure Secure Shipment of Hazardous Materials

 

Between 2009 and 2011, community risk assessments were conducted by Defence Research Development Canada (DRDC) across Canada. It was determined the top challenges around accidents during ground transportation of Hazardous Materials were:

  • Incidents often required resources beyond the community’s capabilities; 
  • Responders often were challenged to identify detailed specifics about the load;
  • Incidents caused costly disruption to the supply chain, such as closure of critical trucking routes, while materials were identified and tactical mitigation was performed.
