Partnership for Excellence in Pipeline Safety

The National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) has partnered with the Office of Pipeline Safety to help ensure the safety of America’s vast and growing pipeline infrastructure. The resulting Partnership for Excellence in Pipeline Safety has set a goal of zero pipeline incidents. The Partnership will go beyond the traditional agencies and organizations engaged in pipeline safety. NASFM will rely on the experience and lessons learned from the many existing pipeline safety programs, from federal, state and local regulators involved with pipeline safety, from industries that use and operate pipelines, and from communities with pipelines in their backyards. Ultimately, the program will not focus on simply doing what is required, but on achieving a level of excellence that far exceeds minimum safety standards. The partnership’s website is located at:
