Thanks for the picture. Weather was great and we managed our way thru another training session. Just wanted to express to you that after having taken fire training every 3rd year at the minimum for 35 years , I found you to be one of the best instructors I have experienced. You know your stuff, are to the point, build trust and confidence easily and have a great attitude. You are good at what you do and it shows. Don’t change!!

Dear Firemaster Oilfield Services:
On behalf of Suncor Energy and in particular, the Blueberry field operation staff, I would like to extend a huge thank you to all Firemaster employees who were involved in the response and fire suppression activities at the Blueberry Battery on the night of August 6 and early morning of August 7, 1997. It is extremely comforting to know that there are professionals such as those within your organization who can be called upon in an emergency to respond and deal with a potentially life threatening situation.
I would like to recognize especially Wade Meredith and Brian Vantamelen for their response in getting from Grande Prairie to the Blueberry Battery so quickly and then supporting the Suncor emergency response team in formulating and carrying out the action plan to bring both the fires under control and to extinguish them.
I was very impressed with the professionalism and conduct of the entire Firemaster team.

This letter is in regards to the Husky Oil, Rainbow Lake, KRB 0410-15-109-08W6M, uncontrolled release wellhead fire of January 7, 2000.
I would first like to say on behalf of Husky Oil, we are truly thankful for Firemasters quick response in assisting Husky Oil, bringing this serious incident under control in a timely manner. We especially would like to extend our gratitude to your High Level staff, Lionel Draves and Hans Wiedermann, for the quick response, professionalism, and teamwork in working with the response team in a safe, organized manner. Husky Oil was impressed with the operation of Firemasters equipment and service and without the integrity that was displayed by your company, the situation may have been far more serious.
Again I wish to thank you for quick and professional service and if you have any questions or to discuss, please feel free to contact myself.
— Gord Olson, Area Superintendent
I would like to take time and thank Firemaster and all the personnel out on the BP Canada blowout in Ft.Saskatchewan, Alberta in August 2001. Through team work and great communication the blowout was extinguished without incident. The risk to my crew and myself were high, it was great comfort having the knowledge that you and your crew was there to back us up and protect us from further risk. I look forward to working with you and your crews in future jobs.
The level of professionalism shown by your company and all personnel on lease far surpasses not only other safety companies in the Canadian oilfield but worldwide. It is my feeling that Firemaster is one of the finest safety companies in the field today.

At BP, our HSE goals are simply stated, "No Accidents, No Harm to People, No Damage to the Environment". To help accomplish this, we must first embrace continual improvement and include HSE in our measurable objectives and targets in all levels of the company. With targets comes accountability, with this accountability we must choose only the best service providers and work with them in open, honest relationships to achieve the improvements built into our objectives. Firemaster truly is one of these organizations, that, in our opinion, describes "Best in Class".
As we progress to our goal of "Zero Accidents" by 2005, we continually rely on organizations like Firemaster to provide us with the personnel and equipment that to create the success of every operation they touch. The high level of performance we experience does not come by chance. Firemaster has industry leading commitment from the management team and their workers. This is evident in areas such as training, equipment, worker attitude, on site performance and self improvements like ISO 9000 series certification

Mark Resources has used Firemaster Oilfield Services for a number of years in both well control and safety service situations. Their employees are highly trained and qualified in emergency response situations. They have some of the most advanced and highly maintained Oilfield fire fighting control equipment (fire trucks) and safety trailers in Western Canada.
I feel Firemaster is capable of providing top notch manpower, service and equipment in any type of well control situation.

On February 15, 1991 Amoco Canada had a fire at an oilwell in the Brazeau area of West-Central Alberta. Wellhead equipment had failed and the well was in a state of uncontrolled flow of oil and gas. When the extent of the fire was determined, Amoco called Firemaster Oilfield Services.
Firemaster equipment from Drayton Valley and Red Deer arrived on site. Amoco and Firemaster personnel developed a plan of attack and began work to bring the well under control. First, equipment and materials were assembled, secondly all peripheral production equipment was removed from the wellhead area, and third, piping was connected to the well, the well was circulated to water, the well was brought under control and the fire extinguished.
During this entire sequence of events, Amoco Canada personnel were pleased with the performance of Firemaster personnel and equipment. The Firemaster personnel were very knowledgeable and professional in working with Amoco to develop a plan and then executing it. All of the Firemaster equipment worked according to design. The situation was brought under control while minimizing production loss, without equipment malfunction and without injury to any workers.
I am pleased to recommend Firemaster personnel and equipment for this type of work.
— J.D Bueckert, District Manager
Good Morning, Glen:
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed this course that a bulk of our JEDCO workers took last Friday. It was just the right balance of lecture work and practical hands-on experience. Many of our workers responded that “if ever there was a course that should be mandatory for everyone, this is it!” Virtually every worker took something valuable away from this course (EVEN the ones who KNOW EVERYTHING!).
Your instructors were top-notch…job well done!
Thanks for accommodating our needs on short notice.
