Alliance Pipeline's emergency response is grounded in the Incident Command System (ICS), an internationally recognized system for effective command, control, and coordination of an incident response. This system ensures seamless communication between company officials, first responders, impacted stakeholders, and the public at large.
Alliance employees have been trained through regular drills and emergency response exercises. This advanced preparation and incident-specific training helps to ensure a cohesive, measured response and proactive communication during incident response.
Alliance's actions are further guided by an ERP that focuses on protecting life safety as a first priority, and then protecting property and minimizing environmental impact.
As a member of both the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) and the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA), Alliance is constantly working towards the overarching goal of zero incidents – as mandated by both associations. The association is made up of over 10 pipeline operators, and represents a collaborative approach to ensuring responsible, sustainable infrastructure development and maintenance.
