Lac Megantic update

January 31st, 2014

I just wanted to update you on the Lac Megantic fire truck.

This is an older truck, that was a gift from the City of Hamilton, Ontario Canada Fire Department to help Lac Megantic recover from the incredible loss it experienced this past summer when a train load of volatile crude oil crashed and destroyed the center of town. Words do not do the devastation justice.

The chief, Denis Lauzon, asked me [Mark Biernat is FRC’s manufacturer’s rep for Canada] if the FRC flowmeters were still able to be serviced on the old apparatus. When I explained the situation to the FRC service department – the flowmeters were offered at no charge. I dropped off the last flowmeter this week with TechnoFeu (the local E-One dealer) who was tasked with doing the installation and pump rebuild.

The truck will be ready for a pump test later this week and should be in service soon. Please know that this very generous gesture by FRC is greatly appreciated by the city of Lac Megantic.

Thank you very much,
Mark Biernat
