Public Notice: Emergency Response Exercise

Oct 11, 2017

On Friday, October 13, Delta will be running a mock emergency exercise to evaluate interagency response to a major incident at Roberts Bank. Please do not be alarmed if you notice an influx of emergency vehicles and personnel at Roberts Bank or in the surrounding areas. 

The participants for this event include:

  • Delta
  • Delta Fire & Emergency Services 
  • Delta Police Department
  • Vancouver Fraser Port Authority
  • Global Container Terminals Canada
  • BC Rail
  • Fraser Health Authority
  • Westshore Terminals.

These exercises are necessary for Delta and our community partners to validate emergency response plans, as well as to clarify and practice roles and responsibilities in the event of a major emergency. 

The exercise will run from 8 am until 12 pm. The port terminals will remain open throughout the duration of the exercise.
