The course is presented by OSUFST instructors, sponsored by OPAL, and developed for the Pipeline Emergency Response Initiative (PERI.) This is a four (4) hour, no-cost, training program for emergency responders that work near pipeline locations or that may be first on the scene of a pipeline emergency. The course content focuses on preventing pipeline emergencies and the importance of taking proper action, should an incident occur. Information will be provided that will aid the student in understanding potential hazards associated with pipeline operation and the role of the pipeline operator during an emergency. The student will learn actions that are vital to protect themselves and the public during an emergency and how to obtain additional information about these systems and the operators in their area.

The Pipeline Emergency Awareness for Emergency Responders curriculum is designed to address the needs and issues these personnel face during a pipeline emergency. Through lecture and student activities, participants will learn the importance of their role in safely mitigating an incident involving a pipeline, essential information that should be acquired about the emergency, important safety directions that should be conveyed to the public and other response agencies, the significance of specific information when notifying pipeline operators and emergency responders of an emergency.

Participants will learn actions that should be taken during the initial response phase of an incident and examine historic events to determine how they would respond to similar events. Participants will explore if their current S.O.P.s and training would accomplish desired outcomes for similar events.
