Pipeline Community Awareness and Safety: What You Need to Know
There will be a public meeting on Wednesday, September 19th at 7 PM in the Fugett Middle School Auditorium to address questions community members might have in the event of a pipeline emergency. The meeting will be narrowly focused on emergency responses to a pipeline emergency. Bill Turner (Chester County Deputy Director for Emergency Management) will lead the discussion along with representatives from Hazmat, Emergency Services, and the West Goshen Police Department. Panelists will explain their roles in such a situation including how each agency would respond to a particular scenario and what residents should do and not do. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers at the end. The meeting is organized by Chester County Department of Emergency Services and State Representative Carolyn Comitta.
