A staged pipeline rupture - billed as "as close to the real thing as possible - will be the featured event at Noblesville Safety Day, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 19.

The event, sponsored by Enertech, the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and Vectren, is scheduled for the Hamilton County Fairgrounds, 2003 Pleasant St., Noblesville.

The free event brings first responders, utility, oil and gas, municipal, and county personnel together to take part in dynamic hands-on scenario safety training of a staged pipeline rupture.

A presentation on the Indiana Dig Law begins at 8:30 a.m., going over rules and regulations and the need to call Indiana811 prior to any excavation in order to get underground utilities located before excavation.

At 12:30 p.m. attendees have the opportunity to experience a mock natural gas line strike showing what happens when a natural gas line is struck by mechanized digging equipment, and what steps need to be taken in the immediate aftermath.

The Noblesville Fire Department and emergency medical technicians, Noblesville Police and Vectren will work together in a unified command to control the incident. The line will be pressurized with air to simulate natural gas.

The information and scenario presented here is applicable from larger cities down to small townships - anywhere that first responders have to protect citizens.

"Striking a natural gas line is not something anyone wants to take lightly," says Mark Allen, Enertech president. "Should it happen, you literally have only seconds to make decisions that could save your life. As partners in safety, pipeline companies value the unique skills and expertise of the emergency responders. Working through this scenario, we all gain hands-on experience and learn from each other in the process."
