Emergency Officials And Responders
Local emergency officials are responsible for planning, coordinating, and conducting emergency preparedness and response activities. Their role is critical in ensuring communities are prepared to take action consistent with the pipeline operator’s and other emergency responders’ programs.
Pipeline operators are required to share relevant information from their emergency plans with emergency officials. Pipeline operators are also required to establish and maintain communication with local emergency officials and coordinate planned and actual responses during an emergency.
Learn more about what emergency officials can do to impact pipeline safety by reviewing the information contained on this website, attending a meeting, or just by getting to know the pipeline operators in your area.
