  • I do not like paper work
  • The incident will be over quickly –
    • Release: Isolate source, deny entry & monitor
    • Fire / Explosion: Call FD
  • Natural Gas dissipates – no mess !
  • NIMS is notrequired for industry (yet)
now the pros
Now the Pros ...
  • Technical Expertise? …YES!
    • Don’t ever sell yourself short
  • You have extensive knowledge of:
    • NG Distribution & Transmission Operations

Moving forward with or without NIMS

Personal Suggestions:

  • Discuss how or if Management wants employees to actively participate in an emergency response.
  • Train employees accordingly
  • Focus on the 8 key ICS roles
  • Do not get lost in NIMS. Use what you need – smile & nod at the rest
moving forward with or without nims personal suggestions cont
Moving forward with or without NIMS - Personal Suggestions cont:
  • FEMA courses will get you the certificate ... but may not provide a functional understanding
  • Supplement any ICS training with site-specific scenario discussions
  • Know what Agencies will respond and why
  • Pursue relationships with Agencies
    • At minimum, focus on Local Fire Departments
    • Invite them for a tour / meet & greet event
    • Attend Local Emergency Response Committee Mtgs
