False alarm! HazMat call turns out to be motor oil

Global News has reported on a recent call to Vancouver Fire and Rescue Service’s hazmat team about an unidentified substance at a downtown health centre.

The lobby at Pender Health Centre on Pender Street in the city’s downtown east side was evacuated due to a dark “liquid-like substance.”

Vancouver Assistant Fire Chief Sheldon Young described the call as a false alarm.
