5.30 Emergency Coordination with Adjacent Facilities

Practice Statement:

Emergency response planning includes coordination with emergency responders and other aboveground and/or underground infrastructure facility owner/operators identified by the Incident Commander through the Incident Command System/Unified Command (ICS/UC) during an emergency.16

Practice Description:

During emergency situations, there are many stakeholders involved: excavators, locators, owner/operators, first responders, one call centers, and the general public. Any actions taken by one stakeholder could adversely affect other stakeholders. Accordingly, emergency planning and response are coordinated.
