Safe Schools & Emergency Preparedness
Approximately one in every 20 schools is located within a half-mile of a petroleum or natural gas transmission pipeline or aboveground pipeline facility. And yet, pipelines are often overlooked when schools assess risk and create emergency plans.
Pipelines are the safest and most reliable method for transporting energy products. Although rare, a pipeline leak can occur if a pipeline is damaged. If your school is located near a pipeline, use the information in this site to assure that you know the signs of a leak and how to quickly respond to protect students, staff and facilities.
About The School Pipeline Safety Partnership
The School Pipeline Safety Partnership is a joint program sponsored by the Pipeline Association for Public Awareness and the Danielle Dawn Smalley Foundation. The Partnership's pipeline education program provides information and guidance to school administrators, safety officials, bus drivers and other staff at schools located near underground pipelines.
