Member Hero Story: Culligan to the rescue!

Culligan helps fire fightes: suppling water

During the initial hours of the crisis I received a call from REOC asking if we would remain operational to supply water to the first responders.

Having determined that our staff had been evacuated safely, Culligan with a reduced emergency staff provided drinking water to all the first responders at numerous locations throughout the  municipality.

When it was decided to have Anzac and Mac Island as evacuation centres Culligan sent a convoy of trucks down to ensure an adequate supply of potable water was available for all of the evacuees.  

Culligan continues to supply potable water throughout the region during the current boiled water advisory for all first responders and the essential services in the Regional Municipality.

During the reoccupation phase we will have our purification plant in full operation and look forward to being involved in the rebuilding of this great community of WB.

I would also like to say a few words about our first responders.. these man and women in our Fire and Police force are something of heroes, I witnessed firsthand risking their own lives to safe all of us and our properties. I seen the emotional toll that it has taken on all of them knowing they couldn’t do even more..

Just remember this…. When we were all running out of this town they were running in.


So thank you to all of our First Responders that put their lives on the line for all of us, I can’t thank you enough….
