First Alert Locating Ltd provides professional, precise and complete locating services. Our clients can proceed with their projects – in confidence and safety.
Marty and Jamie Andersen’s initial objective with First Alert was to deliver highly accurate locates for all types of projects. They established their head office in Grande Prairie, Alberta, so they could concentrate their services in Northern and Central Alberta and British Columbia. To date, however, First Alert has completed projects as far away as Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut and internationally in Ecuador. In 2011, First Alert established branch a office in Whitecourt, Alberta to help alleviate costs for their clients. In 2016, a branch office in Dawson Creek was also established to help alleviate costs and service clients in BC.
Accurate locating and precise mapping are their main priorities because scanning a work site ensures due diligence in the prevention of line strikes. Adhering to current ground disturbance rules reassures AER, WCB and OH&S governing departments that all efforts have been made to minimize potential hazards for oil and gas companies and their workers during ground disturbance projects. First Alert’s particular scanning techniques and procedures have been fine tuned over the years by their team of professionals to prevent as many incidents as possible.
