Disaster Forum Silver Sponsor ATCO shared their emergency preparedness philosophy, and the reasons why they invest in our work:
Taking Our Responsibilities Seriously
Albertans trust ATCO to provide a safe and secure supply of electricity and natural gas to power their homes, fuel their businesses and energize their industries. We are responsible for designing, building and maintaining 88,000 km of electrical powerlines and over 65,000 km of natural gas pipelines that keep communities thriving across the globe. So, when disaster strikes – ATCO responds, ensuring the integrity of critical infrastructure, the safe delivery of essential services and on-the- ground support for first responders.
Why Disaster Forum?
We take the safety and security of our customers and operating communities very seriously. That is why for 11 years, ATCO has proudly supported Disaster Forum. The annual event serves as an excellent opportunity to engage emergency response professionals and learn best practices for disaster mitigation, response and recovery.
ATCO Believes in Excellence for Our Communities
