EXCITING PARTNERSHIP WITH
TC ENERGY TO BENEFIT MAMEC MEMBERS
RURAL MUNICIPALITIES NOW HAVE ACCESS
TO MORE EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT
TC Energy and the Manitoba Association of Municipal Emergency Coordinators Providing Life Saving Gear for Emergencies
TC Energy (formerly TransCanada) has provided an $80,000 donation to the Manitoba Association of Municipal Emergency Coordinators (MAMEC) to provide dedicated equipment for emergency responses.
“We are pleased to provide funding to help the municipal emergency coordinators with gear essential to emergency response,” said Steve Loney of TC Energy. “MAMEC will acquire the equipment and it will be stored at the Village of St. Pierre Jolys’ municipal yard, Mayor Raymond Maynard and his council generously offered secured space for the equipment. The TC Energy donation will be used to buy new equipment such as:
• large capacity water pumps, electric generators, light towers, VHF radios, a cell phone booster, tents that will serve as a command post or pet evacuation centres and two trailers to store the equipment; and
• the funds will also cover the cost of a Herman Nelson heater with capacity to heat a large area such as a reception centre, complete with tables, chairs, kennels, emergency operation centre leadership kits, cots for a reception centre and toy boxes to entertain children.
TC Energy has also donated a truck outfitted with loudspeaker, toolboxes and lights that can be used to haul the trailers.
The donation was made through TC Energy’s Build Strong program, which provides valuable tools and resources to first responders, helps fund educational programs, supports important community needs and strengthens environmental stewardship in the communities where the company lives and works.

“This new initiative will aid communities who are members of MAMEC to utilize this equipment in times of emergency,” said Don Emes, President of MAMEC. “We thank TC Energy for their generous donation in helping us help people in our municipalities in times of trouble.”
