DIVERSE RESCUE TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONAL ROPE TEAMS

Our groundbreaking custom training event organized and hosted by Voyageur Technical, spanned five diverse facilities, and forced our participants to engage in comprehensive day-and-night, indoor-outdoor scenarios, in high angle and confined space environments.

Suspended Superheroes 2022

Voyageur Technical Inc. is proud to have been the driving force behind Suspended Superheroes 2022, the inaugural event of an annual fundraising initiative for the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba

With support from the Winnipeg Police Service Tactical Support Team, Royal Canadian Mounted Police's Emergency Response Team, The Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba and Heather's Pretty Parties, we were able to realize a vision that started back in the spring of 2022. 

NEW LIGHTS ON THE ESPLANADE RIEL

Working with a team of contractors and engineers, Voyageur was asked to assist in the most innovative bridge lighting project in Manitoba. Working around access challenges and the traffic of the ever-open foot bridge, our team was able to safely climb all over the structure during this project. Assisting in the removal, installation and alignment of the lighting upgrade was a fun project for the team and the results for the city are stunning.

AIR CONDITIONING CAN'T COME FAST ENOUGH

Our team was recently engaged to assist in getting a commercial building upgrade project back on schedule after an access problem threatened to stall production - all during the heat wave. The task was to access and reinforce the joist supporting certain areas of the roof in order to support the weight of new air conditioning units. Working at night (still 38C in the work space) to avoid any interference with normal day-time business operations, our team of specialists completed all of the work ahead of schedule and under budget.

IT'S DIFFERENT IN THE ROCKS

Voyageur recently ran a weekend Rocks and Rescue seminar, focusing on tree and rock anchors, different access and rescue systems, and the hazards of working near a natural edge.  The weekend was a hot one, but the clear cool water at the bottom offered ample opportunity to cool off. 

A big thank-you to all the participants for making this event so successful.
