About First Response

Prepare   Respond   Recover   Restore

Experience You Can Trust
It’s not something we expect or want to happen, to you, to your neighbor, to anyone, but when you’re faced with the inevitability of an unexpected disaster,
you’ll want to make sure that you have the right remediation and restoration company in your corner. At First Response we know about, diagnose and proactively respond to the needs of  your community, often before you even know that you need us. We are driven by one thing – getting your life, your business and your family back to normal as quickly as possible.

First Response’s main service is to provide complete Environmental & Restoration Management.  What sets us apart from others is that this can be conducted on a moment’s notice 24/7/365.

Environmental Emergency Response
First Response provides immediate and rapid response to any release to the natural environment.  This can be a simple fuel spill from a truck accident,
or a major toxic release from an industrial plant.  Highly trained and outfitted crews will respond to your situation and provide immediate stabilization and mitigation to ensure complete environmental compliance.

Confined Space Rescue Crews
Recently the rules and requirements have changed thus “Qualified and Outfitted CSSR crews are required at your point of entry to a Confined Space “.  Calling 911 or using your shop floor staff for emergencies is no longer acceptable under new demanding legislation.

We will supply the necessary highly trained CSSR teams to assist you with your confined space entries.  Our crew members are heavily trained to exceed all provincial requirements and have (at time of writing) in excess of 188,000 hrs of provided services under their belts.

To lessen the liability, First Response will provide the equipment and personnel to ensure a safe entry and egress of your workers from the dangers of a confined space.

Benefit from our years of providing Spill Response and other Restoration Emergency Services.  Our instructors are actively involved in Emergency Situations on a daily basis thus they can pass on their skills to your workers.

Special Services
Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive (CBRNE) issues are potentially around us at any time.   Law Enforcement is well prepared but they still rely on support services from the private sector.  First Response is the only local company that provides this highly specialized service with the most advanced air monitoring equipment and mobile decontamination services.  First Response holds numerous contracts with hospitals and other agencies for this unique service.  Crime scene clean up, body decontamination and other classified services are provided to select branches of the government and Municipalities.

Equipment & Systems
First Response is one of North America’s largest suppliers of building dehumidification and ambient control equipment. We command several fleets of commercial desiccant dehumidifiers, thousands of high velocity and low amperage air movers (to facilitate limited power supply), along with thousands of Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers.

We also stock hundreds of negative air handlers and air scrubbers, temporary power distribution supply boxes as well as specialty equipment such as odor-controlled, thermo-fogging units, mobile generators and much, much, more!
