The purpose of the Emergency Management Interest Group is to build community within its peer group and engage this Interest Group in dialogue to facilitate the exchange of information. The Emergency Management Interest Group is focused on managing natural gas emergencies especially those caused by third party or operation errors or anything related to natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornados, floods, earthquakes, and pandemic.
This workshop is conducted annually and combines training and education for managing both natural disasters and third party damage emergencies. This workshop is beneficial for key personnel involved in emergency planning and response.

Building a Foundation-Dealing with the News Media as a First Responder
Managing Natural Gas Emergencies
There has been a lot of discussion following the pipeline incident in San Bruno, CA that the pipeline industry needs to be better prepared in working with emergency responders during their response to any type of incident. The SGA developed this workshop to cover topics such as the Incident Command System, Dealing with the Media, Working with Emergency Responders, and exercises to put what is learned in to action. This is also a workshop that can be brought to your own organization if you have a larger group that needs either refresher training or to train new employees in your organization. For more information to bring this workshop to your company and to see a sample agenda of this workshop, contact Kent Hobart.
