Emergency Response

About This Project

M Johnston Construction was contacted one afternoon by the Provincial Emergency Response and RDEK because of a herd of pregnant cows being trapped by rising river water.  These animals were stranded on a small island surrounded by ice jammed river.  The authorities were concerned as the river was rising and would continue to do so and they needed an immediate response.  Within hours M Johnston Construction had temporary bridge structures, equipment and manpower on site.  In an effort that went on through the nite we were able to bridge the open ice filled water and encourage the herd to cross and move inland to safety.
