Pipeline Emergency Response Guidelines
(The Pipeline Association for Public Awareness)

Pipelines are the safest and most reliable way to transport energy products, such as natural gas, crude oil, liquid petroleum products, and chemical products. To meet the pipeline industry’s goal of incident-free operation, pipeline operators invest substantial human and financial resources to protect the people, property and environments near pipelines. Damage prevention measures include routine inspection and maintenance, corrosion protection, continuous monitoring and control technologies, public awareness programs and integrity management and emergency response plans.
While pipelines are considered the safest method of transporting hazardous chemicals, they are not failsafe. Pipeline product releases, whether in the form of a slow leak or violent rupture, are an unlikely risk in any community.

In the rare event of an incident near or involving a pipeline, it is critical you know how to respond and how to work with a pipeline operator’s representatives. The Pipeline Emergency Response Guidelines gives you the tips and techniques you need in order to help protect life, property and the environment.
