On May 30, 2017, a fire alarm sounded inside the Port Granby Project Waste Water Treatment Plant building located on Elliott Road in the Municipality of Clarington. In accordance with CNL’s emergency protocol, all workers immediately evacuated the building. Clarington Emergency and Fire Services were automatically dispatched as a result of the alarm and arrived at the site promptly. Fire services personnel inspected the building and determined that the event was a false alarm.
CNL has engaged a contractor to inspect the fire alarm system and perform any maintenance/repairs that may be required.
At no time was there any risk to the safety of workers, the public or the environment as a result of the false alarm. CNL has proactively notified the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission of this event.
