Thanks to a $3,252 donation from TransCanada Corporation, Indian Valley Vocational Center (IVVC) was able to purchase portable radios that students use for training in three IVVC programs.

This donation adds an important aspect to first responder training for Emergency Medical Technician, Fire Science, and Law Enforcement programs. As communication is key in keeping first responders, community members, and property as safe as possible in an emergency situation, the use of portable radios plays an integral part of most skills and scenarios that students learn through hands-on practice. Students learn how to effectively and correctly use portable radios which helps them become quality employees for jobs on community departments

TransCanada, which has a regional office in Sandwich and operates the nearby ANR Pipeline, has helped IVVC fund other innovative safety projects in recent years.
