Description: Energy Transfer is pleased to offer training to emergency responders in the communities where we operate pipelines. As part of shipping natural gas liquids (NGL) on our pipeline system, we developed specialized training for the police, fire, hazardous materials, EMS, and Emergency Management organizations in the areas of our pipelines that will ship ethane, propane, and butane.

Training sessions known as Mariner Emergency Responder Outreach (MERO) are held with the responders at their own station or educational facilities, and are a supplement to the annual training sessions known as the Coordinated Response Exercise (CoRE) that are annually offered with other local pipeline operators.

Since initiating the MERO program in 2013, more than 2,000 emergency responders have attended a MERO.

Sessions include discussion of mock scenarios and allow time for responders to ask pipeline-related questions. Evaluation of the program is received from everyone who attends and certificates of attendance are emailed to everyone who provides an email address.
