PHMSA Emergency Response Workshop

PHMSA’s December 9th Pipeline Emergency Response Forum will take place at the U.S. Department of Transportation headquarters in Washington, D.C. from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Co-sponsors for this event are the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives (NAPSR) and the United States Fire Administration (USFA). The purpose of the forum is to convene a meeting of leaders in the emergency response community, the government, the pipeline industry, and the interested public to solicit professional advice that will inform the development of a strategy for improving emergency responders’ ability to prepare for and respond to pipeline emergencies.

The main forum sessions will be webcast live and online registration is available now. Registration is required whether you participate in person or by webcast – this is a free workshop. Pre-registration for the forum is available until December 2, 2011.

Meeting space will be limited and PHMSA is encouraging individuals to participate remotely. The workshop will be webcast so please consider participating online.
