Natural Gas Emergencies – They Don’t Start Out as a Disaster
Most pipeline emergencies don’t start as major events. In fact many if not most could have been prevented. The escalation of the incident to disaster can be from the sheer magnitude of the release or hazards of the product. Transmission pipeline releases are in fact low frequency/high consequence events. However, transmission and distribution releases can grow from small mistakes such failure to notify supervisors, ignoring a call to 811, not adhering to procedures, poor planning, poor size up and even incorrect decisions by the organization’s leadership. This presentation uses a street-smart approach to keep an organization’s efforts in an emergency focused on a successful conclusion of the emergency well before it has the opportunity to become a disaster.
Once we get closer to the event the Conference Agenda will be posted. As always, the MANGO Board looks forward to seeing you and your representatives at the conference and are planning to make sure this event is one that will be both benefitial and enjoyable for all.
