  • An understanding about what products move through your jurisdiction and how to be prepared to respond
  • An understanding of specific agency's responsibility during an incident
  • Experience learning how to:
    • Work with the community’s Emergency Response Plan
    • Complete a pipeline scene size up
    • Engage with operator’s control center
    • Interact with operator’s staff and contractors
