Rescue Team Prepares Emergency Response Drill for Acushnet Plant

We are pleased to welcome the Bristol County Technical Rescue Team (BCTRT) to the Acushnet plant, as they prepare an overall emergency response plan.

Funded by Homeland Security, the BCTRT includes local firefighters and other first response professionals who train for advanced life-saving rescue skills on-call across the region. The rescue team recently toured the Acushnet plant with site manager, Jeff Olejniczak and safety lead, Lauri Conner.

The rescue team has planned an emergency response drill at the screen tower in order to prepare for a fall from heights scenario. The date of the drill has been postponed due to the recent thunderstorms, and will be re-scheduled weather permitting. Plans to work with regional rescue teams in the Lunenburg, Cranston, and Dracut areas are to be announced.
