PRC Air Quality Update
Submitted By jbrock on Thursday, September 7, 2017
On Wednesday, September 6, 2017, arena staff were made aware of an air quality issue at the Pyramid Recreation Centre.

Arena staff immediately called the Fire Department and investigated the area. It was determined that the Zamboni may have been emitting unusual levels of Carbon Monoxide.

To resolve the issue both rinks were ventilated and the Zamboni was sent for repairs. The Ministry of Labour was also made aware of the situation. The facility and its ventilation system have been re-tested for Carbon Monoxide and have been found safe. The Zamboni has been emission-tested and is also ready for service.

If you attended the arena yesterday and feel unwell (i.e. experience symptoms such as headaches, nausea, shortness of breath etc.), please seek care from a physician.
