Crimson Pipeline Completes Successful Annual Spill Drill
Every year the Crimson team collaborates with federal, state and local agencies to complete an annual spill drill. The drill is a mock enactment of an oil spill, which provides an opportunity for Crimson employees to train, practice and improve emergency response skills to become better prepared should an actual event occur. Employees from Crimson’s diverse departments including executives, engineers and public information officers, participated in the training exercises at their Long Beach office.
After a day of training on initial response operations and procedures, the team was given a tabletop assignment to respond to a mock spill. During this all-hands-on-deck emergency response drill, the team practiced every action that must take place immediately following a spill, including protecting the public, environment, and alerting all necessary regulatory agencies. This included setting up an incident command center, assessing the potential impacts of the incident, responding to those impacts, drafting public information materials, hosting initial meetings and briefings, etc.
At the conclusion of the exercise, Crimson and participating agencies reviewed and critiqued the exercise. Crimson was commended for executing all necessary emergency operations swiftly and efficiently in order to protect the public, environment and property.
