Emergency Response

“We are trained, equipped, experienced and ready to respond.”

“I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Darren and his crew from Quintech during the Okanagan Mountain Park Fire.
They were assigned a variety of tasks including: working on the fire line, to triaging threatened areas for future operational options, to public education in the areas of our community that were under evacuation alert.

The Quintech crews were very professional and disciplined… all around great guys. Darren Hutchinson was a great resource to our command staff when it came to triaging and introducing us to the benefits of gel in wildland applications.”

– Lou Wilde, Assistant Fire Chief, Kelowna Fire Department
