Recently NSR received a very generous donation of medical equipment from the family of the late Lise Marie Claudette Tompson-Cyr (February 25, 1959 – July 31, 2015). We were honoured to receive a number of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) along with other medical equipment used in remote industrial settings. This equipment will be put to use in supporting NSR’s mission in training and where applicable, operationally.
By way of background, Ms. Tompson-Cyr was a strong business leader and feminist who supported the advancement of woman, especially so in the resource sector. In this, she was a pioneer in the resource industry, with her goal being to ensure a safe work site for those working in remote locations.
Ms. Tompson-Cyr was recognized in her decoration of the David Barr award in safety in 2016.
We are proud to be the recipients of a part of the large legacy she leaves behind, and are sure that this equipment will continue to assist in saving lives for years to come.
