Are You Prepared to Reach 9-1-1 During a Pipeline Emergency?
Did You Know...
An employee simply dialing 9-1-1 from one of your company's monitoring stations, which may be thousands of miles away from an emergency, will only connect him or her with the monitoring station's local 9-1-1 center, not the PSAP nearest to the incident.
During emergencies, your employees need immediate access to current and reliable PSAP contact information.
New Regulations Mandate Your Pipelines Connect to 9-1-1.
Operators of gas, hazardous liquid, and liquefied natural gas pipeline facilities… should immediately and directly notify the Public Safety Access Point (PSAP) that serves the communities and jurisdictions in which those pipelines are located when there are indications of a pipeline facility emergency.
