PHMSA and FEMA release new hazard mitigation guidance document for land use near pipelines

from IAEM

Hazard Mitigation Planning: Practices for Land Use Planning and Development near Pipelines outlines best practices for communities to reduce risks from pipeline incidents, including those caused by natural hazards. It was prepared by Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration's (PHMSA) Pipelines and Informed Planning Alliance (PIPA) Communications Team and is sponsored by PHMSA in coordination with FEMA as a primer for incorporating pipeline hazards into hazard mitigation plans. The guidance provides emergency managers, planners, and others involved with developing hazard mitigation plans with the knowledge and understanding of: how pipelines operate; the common products that may be transported through transmission pipelines; the potential impacts (risks) of pipeline incidents; and mitigation strategies they can implement to reduce these risks. more
