Responding to Natural Gas Emergencies


Responding to Natural Gas Emergencies helps pipeline operators, community officials, and emergency responders learn how to work together to prevent and effectively respond to a pipeline incident.

The program prepares all first responders with practical knowledge addressing aspects of awareness, regulations and standards, hazard and risk evaluation and safe emergency response procedures for handling natural gas emergencies.

Michael Callan and utility experts developed this program from countless case histories to eliminate unnecessary injuries resulting from natural gas incidents.
