PHMSA Announces Dec. 9 Pipeline Emergency Response Forum

From the one-day event at DOT headquarters in Washington, D.C., the agency hopes to develop a strategy for improving responders’ ability to prepare for natural gas and hazardous liquid pipeline emergencies.

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration announced it will co-sponsor a one-day Emergency Responder Forum with the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives and the U.S. Fire Administration. The Dec. 9 event will take place at DOT headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The sponsors are inviting emergency response and management community leaders, pipeline safety regulators, pipeline industry representatives, and interested members of the public to aid in the development of a strategy for improving emergency responders' ability to prepare for and respond to natural gas and hazardous liquid pipeline emergencies. The forum will begin about 8 a.m. and continue until 5:30 p.m., and a webcast of the proceedings will be available.

Pre-registration and an agenda are available until December 2 at this website. Comments also may be submitted electronically via www.regulations.gov (reference Docket ID PHMSA-2011-0295).
