Vale provides funding for hazmat training in Port Colborne

On September 27th, during the Port Colborne Refinery’s Open House, Vale Base Metals presented a $200,000 donation to Port Colborne’s Fire and Emergency Services.  

The donation will provide training and equipment to local emergency response teams, ensuring they are equipped to safely and effectively respond to hazardous material emergencies in industrial sites in the Niagara Region, including the Port Colborne Refinery. This is part of Vale’s commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of its employees, and the communities in which they operate.
