Introduction
Background

The scenarios included in this training should not be used to establish a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for any individual or Emergency Response Organization. Scenarios are unable to describe every hazard and risk that may be present during a pipeline emergency or identify every tactical option for dealing with the problems pipeline emergencies present.

This program is not intended to provide information on the physical or chemical properties of the products transported through pipelines. Nor should it be considered a substitute for emergency response training, knowledge or sound judgment. Rather, this training website contains information that will help you prepare to protect your emergency response team and the surrounding public during a pipeline incident.
