The 4 phases of emergency management

The starting point of a thorough emergency management plan is not rapid response or high-tech equipment.

It’s prevention.

CEPA members are constantly working toward a goal of zero incidents. That’s why their pipeline infrastructure is well-designed, comprehensively maintained and constantly monitored.

However, if an incident does occur, they are ready to take action immediately — from the first warning in a control room, which is monitored 24-7.

Emergency management is a comprehensive, proactive approach to mitigating, preparing for, responding to and managing incidents. See our graphic below to learn all about the details.
