Emergency Management Print Page

Our emergency management program starts with risk mitigation.

Although Inter Pipeline’s goal is zero incidents, we invest heavily in training and preparedness in order to respond promptly, safely and efficiently in the unlikely event of an incident. Since 2014 Inter Pipeline has added around $3.5 million of emergency response equipment and we conduct upwards of 50 training exercises annually. We also operate state-of-the-art control centres and leak detection systems that provide real-time operations monitoring Click on the boxes below to learn more about these areas within our Emergency Management Program:

Inter Pipeline's Emergency Management program is an all-hazards program that includes mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.  It is designed to provide a continuous cycle of improvement.
