Drills, Tabletops & Exercises

Emergency Response Assistance Canada (ERAC) organizes and take an active role in tabletop (or small-scale) and on-site exercises designed to test facility preparedness and regulatory compliance. ERAC’s team includes an average of 30 years in emergency planning and dangerous goods response, a bachelor’s degree in Geographic Information Systems and decades of experience in writing emergency response plans.

For Environmental Emergency (E2) plans,

  • annually we plan, organize and facilitate small-scale exercises via webinar, and provide a written report, and
  • we also plan, organize and facilitate the mandatory full-scale exercise every five years, and provide a SWOT audit and gap analysis report.

ERAC also offers:

  • ICS 200 and 300 training – these in-person courses (ICS 200 can also be run virtually) define the unique qualities of ICS as an event or incident management system in an expanding situation. The courses are designed to enable personnel to operate efficiently using the ICS in supervisory roles on expanding incidents. 
  • Online courses – these modules, designed for dangerous goods responders but applicable to anyone in the industry, give you an overview of ICS 100, gas detection, PPE, container damage assessment, bonding and grounding, product transferring, vapour and liquid flaring, container purging, as well as H2S Awareness.
  • LPG Firefighting training – a free online awareness level, completely revised in 2021, as well as LPG Level 1 Operations Firefighting training for first responders.
