Pipeline safety and awareness will be the focal point of local efforts, courtesy of a $1,000 grant from the Kansas Pipeline Association. Each year, KPA hosts more than 30 meetings across the state for emergency responders on how to deal with a pipeline emergency. Agencies that are represented at the meetings are entered into a drawing, with 15 such agencies receiving $1,000 each to use at their discretion. Allen County Emergency Management Director Jason Trego said in a news release the funds will go toward additional education resources for organizations within the county.
