This free event brings first responders, utility, oil & gas, municipal, and other personnel together to take part in dynamic hands-on scenario safety training.

A PipelineResponseclass begins at 8:00 am.  PipelineResponsedeploys a diverse set of training and presentation tools to deliver a more measurable and comprehensive set of documentation to operators, improving reach and creating the critical connections necessary to respond properly to a pipeline incident.

The video/photography rich pipeline rupture drill program begins at 9:00 am.  Attendees will have the rare opportunity of experiencing a mock gas pipeline rupture showing what happens when a gas delivery line is struck by mechanized digging equipment, and what steps need to be taken in the immediate aftermath. Atmos Energy, Heath Consultants and Brazos County Precinct 4 VFDwill work together in a unified command to control the incident.

Here is a video link to a similar event recently presented in Corpus Christi.

“Striking any kind of underground line is not something anyone wants to take lightly,” says David Ferguson with Texas811.  “Should it happen to be gas, for instance, you literally have only seconds to make decisions that could save your life.  As partners in safety, pipeline companies value the unique skills and expertise of the emergency responders. Working through this scenario, we all gain hands-on experience and learn from each other in the process.”

Among available interviews are those with representatives from gas suppliers,Texas811, Enertech, and area first responders.
