Pipeline Emergency – Local Delivery Train-the-Trainer (Concord)

Richard M. Flynn Training Facility 98 Smokey Bear Blvd, Concord, NH, United States

The Pipeline Emergencies program is designed to provide a technically accurate and useful resource document for those who may be called upon to respond to a pipeline incident. We also believe that this material will give the pipeline industry and fire service community an excellent opportunity to work together in planning and training activities which will enable incidents to be handled safely, expediently, and efficiently. The Pipeline Emergencies is designed to help fire service and industry emergency responders to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and effectively manage a pipeline incident. It is based upon nationally recognized engineering practices, recommended operating practices, and training programs. This is the third edition of the program which was completely updated and released in January of 2017. Also, in 2017, the field education (IE classroom) component of the program underwent a third major content review and update to keep the content current given recent issues and events, yet still maintaining its balance with NFPA 472 and 1072. As the demand for energy continues to grow, so too will the need for pipelines. While pipelines may become a controversial issue, this should not keep responders from training on this high-risk, low frequency event. The scenarios included in the program are designed to cover a wide range of potential incidents, while allowing responders to work through them using the resources available to them, thus allowing them the tools they need for their individual toolbox should such an event occur in or near their jurisdiction.
