Our staff's continued efforts to be good neighbours in the communities we operate in haven't gone unnoticed. One recent example of lending a hand in an emergency situation embodies the spirit of the Courtesy Matters philosophy.
On April 13 Encana's Kakwa plant night crew jumped into action after a call for assistance from Scott Webb, an Encana Operation's Safety Coordinator volunteering with the Grande Cache Fire Department. At approximately 9 p.m. the fire department was asked to assist a semi-truck that had jack-knifed on a hill leading up to the plant and came to rest 400 metres down the icy slope. Encana's Darren Campbell assisted the fire crew by providing coffee and a pick-up truck to haul chains up and down the hill. It took seven hours to get the highway cleared and traffic flowing again.
"Darren went above his normal duties at the plant to assist us. I would like to recognize him for his efforts and support towards the fire department," says Webb. "I believe even if I wasn't on the fire crew that night our staff would act no differently in a similar situation."
