On January 29, 2015, PHMSA held an application development webinar for its Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness Grant program. This webinar provides guidance on the 2015 grant application, budget processes, new program requirements, and common concerns.
ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- The Asheville Fire Department along with other area agencies participated in a rail safety and emergency response training Wednesday to learn what to do in an emergency hazmat situation on the rail line. "Training is definitely the key," said Abby Moore with the Asheville Fire Department. "The more you train, the better you know." The training is offered every year, free of charge, and is sponsored by TRANSCAER, Transportation Community Awareness and Emergency Response. Emergency responders from across Western North Carolina participate in both hands on exercises and in classroom instruction on leak assessment and control. Other topics include safety on railroad property, interpreting shipping documents, rail equipment identification, locomotive fires, incident response procedures and working with railroad officials. Moore says a hazmat situation could arise at any moment and it is important to be prepared for when it happens, rather than if it happens, given the range of materials that are transported by the rail"everything from sulfur and propane to coal and grain. "We see this type of transportation, coming up and down our rail systems up and down I-40, I-26 and we want to teach real life situations, what would happen," Moore said. It is held at the Norfolk Southern Rail yard and will continue Thursday. "The satisfaction to know that I can maybe make a difference. If something were to happen, maybe I've got a plan of making a difference," said Larry Williams with Norfolk Southern Railroad.

Members of the BFD Technical Rescue Team spend time each year practicing the response to a call for a collapsed trench. Trench rescue is a challenging and important task for these first responders. The education includes classroom training and real world exercises with scenarios. Trench rescue, is hazardous for responding personnel. The risk for emergency personnel responding to a "cave-in" is especially high: A collapsed trench or excavation has greater than a 50 percent chance of collapsing again, particularly when rescuers are digging out the original victims. This potential secondary collapse, combined with numerous other factors such as adverse weather, hazardous atmospheres, release of gas from ruptured lines, broken water lines, the number of victims, and department capabilities, makes such a response challenging. This training took place at United Water who generously provides the location and digs the trenches for this essential training. The cooperative effort helps prepare firefighters to respond to incidents that take place across the city, and the region.

► Subscribe to PoliceCenter: https://goo.gl/jR7Abo Milford, TX — Officials in Milford said residents will likely have to wait until late Friday night before they can return home following a gas pipeline explosion Thursday morning south of the town in Ellis County. The explosion occurred just after 9:30 a.m. at a drilling site near FM 308 in a rural area. Officials said the crew working on the rig was able to escape and there were no injuries. Ellis County Judge Carol Bush said a 1.5 mile radius around the site has been closed off as a team investigates. Representatives with Chevron, which owns the pipeline, were also at the scene. "I thought something fell on the house at first, so I went out to look and there was another boom; it wasn't real loud or anything, but then there was a third one that really got my attention," said Milford resident Randy Mercott. "The flames were extremely high in the air, over the tree line and over the power cords I could see the flames." Officials said Milford will remain evacuated for about 36 hours based on the assessment of Texas Emergency Management, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. "We plan to monitor the situation," Bush said."... I know that there may be some concerns. You look outside and you see a plume of black smoke and we have been told — it has been represented to us — that the smoke is not toxic. But, we don't want to rely on just the initial representations and assessments. We want to make sure we have the officials in place to come and actually assess any potential dangers that might ... need to be addressed." According to Milford volunteer fire Chief Mark Jackson, the explosion happened when a 10-inch liquid petroleum gas line was broken. The drilling rig became completely engulfed in flames and large plumes of thick black smoke filled the sky. Several vehicles at the site were destroyed in the blaze. The line was closed off and crews waited for the fire to burn itself out. Chevron officials arrived at the scene in Ellis County Thursday night and apologized. "I'd like to start off expressing my apology on behalf of Chevron and myself," said Jim Barnum, Chevron spokesman from Bellaire, Tex. on Thursday night. Chevron expressed gratitude to Ellis County's first responders in protecting people after the explosion. The company is assembling plans and mobilizing equipment to get the situation stablizied, Barnum added. "We wont attempt to blow out the flame, per se," he continued, "we will let the 10-inch pipe burn out." Chevron also revealed the neighboring 14-inch pipeline next to the one on fire continues to have high-pressure gas run through it. "Up to this point, we've kept product in that line to keep it as cool as possible because that product in it will help cool it," Barnum explained. He said the company couldn't guess how long the fire will burn since engineers don't know the size of the rupture. The pipeline on fire stretches 2,295 miles and carries high pressure liquified petroleum gas from southeast New Mexico to Mont Belvieu, which is just east of Houston. Jackson said about 200 students in the Milford Independent School District were evacuated to the gym of Italy High School, called The Dome. The blast was about a half-mile from the campus. Bush said while almost everyone voluntarily evacuated. "I was shocked, no words for it," said senior Aryan Jordan. "I was scared." Milford's school superintendent reiterated classes are cancelled tomorrow and said it is still uncertain whether its football team will take part in a playoff game since players can't get to any of their equipment on campus. By 5 p.m., few people remained at the school. Officials closed off numerous roads as they waited for the fire to burn out. The Milford campus was staffed largely by substitutes because several teachers were at a conference in Dallas. School officials say the evacuation went perfectly. The Red Cross also created a shelter at Italy High School for residents forced to evacuate. At 5 p.m., 51 people were registered to stay there. Milford's mayor, Bruce Perryman, said all but two of the town's residents complied with the evacuation order. A couple of them decided to remain in their homes. Milford is located about 14 miles northeast of Hillsboro. In 2010, the population was counted at 728, according to the U.S. Census. _________________________________________________________ (Video posted strictly for educational and informational purposes) Police Center in your source for police related news and events.

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

Full title: New Emergency Animal Mortality Management (368) Conservation Practice Standard and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Presented by: Glenn Carpenter, Ph.D., National Leader, Animal Husbandry, USDA NRCS Ecological Sciences Division, Washington, D.C. Cherie LaFleur, P.E., Environmental Engineer, USDA NRCS Central National Technology Support Center, Ft. Worth, TX Lori Miller, P.E., Senior Staff Officer / Environmental Engineer, Science, Technology and Analysis Services, Veterinary Services, USDA APHIS, Washington, D.C. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. Participants will learn about the new NRCS conservation practice standard CPS 368 to manage emergency related animal mortality and about USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) emergency response in the current Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza situation, including the roles and responsibilities of both NRCS and APHIS. This webinar is a review of the new NRCS conservation practice standard for Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368). With climate change there seems to be an increasing number of storm events and associated animal mortality disaster situations. There are also a large number of emergency mortality situations related to animal health; the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) situation of Spring 2015 is an example. Emergency Animal Mortality Management (CPS 368) has been removed from CPS 316 Animal Mortality Facility to strengthen NRCS’s ability to deal with emergency situations, increase the number of disposal options, and more explicitly define NRCS’ roles and responsibilities in providing assistance in a disaster situation. The webinar will also discuss APHIS's role in the recent HPAI outbreak, and how we can coordinate our roles in future events. This webinar includes an informative Q&A session at the end of the presentation, for a total duration of 1:53 minutes for the on-demand webinar.
PHMSA held a Hazardous Materials Safety Research and Development Forum on May 16 and 17, 2018, in Washington, D.C., to present the results of recently completed projects, solicit stakeholder input on plans for future projects, and discuss research gaps associated with topics of interest such as energetic materials characterization and transport, safe transport of energy products (STEP), and safe packaging and transportation of charge storage devices.
The workshop will focus on the physical safety of event participants and staff in relation to a wide array of risks, how to integrate event operations with fire, police, and EMS as well as an overview of how to best prepare and create an effective special events safety plan.

GRCC, in partnership with the World Affairs Council of Western Michigan, presents Keith Schneider, Circle of Blue and Liz Kirkwood, FLOW (For Love of Water) Water outlines Michigan’s geography and culture. And, with climate change and national water scarcity, it could define a much greater share of our economy. Mr. Schneider reports on the mega trends influencing global water supply and use. Demand for energy and food in an era of diminishing fresh water reserves has weakened national economies, destabilized governments, touched off civic rebellions, and put pressure on the world’s biggest financial institutions. Executive Director of FLOW (a water law and policy center), and an environmental lawyer, Ms. Kirkwood highlights water, energy, and environmental governance issues. She was the leading force in shaping the “Oil & Water Don’t Mix” campaign to address the Line 5 pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac.
