Community Emergency Response Plans
Communities develop emergency response plans to address a variety of potential emergencies that could impact their residents. Commonly addressed emergencies include flooding, tornados, earthquakes and even hurricanes. Make sure to work with your local pipeline operator(s) to plan for emergencies that result from a pipeline release or have the potential to impact pipeline operations. This plan should be coordinated with pipeline operators, local emergency management officials, HAZMAT and other organizations as appropriate.
