Flooding and Storm Preparedness: How to Prepare Your Aboveground Storage Tanks for Natural Disasters

Live Webinar: Monday, April 30, 2018

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Join this webinar to learn about preparing your aboveground storage tank to prevent catastrophic equipment failures from flooding, storms, and hurricanes.


 

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria showed the country that global weather changes are leading to an increased frequency and magnitude of natural disasters in many areas. With the increased likelihood of a catastrophic weather event coming your way, it will pay to prepare your vulnerable aboveground storage tank (AST) facilities to avoid costly equipment failures and releases. When owners/operators are hit with natural disasters, they are expected to know what to do to prevent the escalation of problems and how to mitigate problems resulting from them. Having no plan is not only a major risk, but a major legal liability.

Join us on April 30th when Phil Myers, a well-known authority in the area of storage tanks, piping, and pressure vessels will discuss all the key preparedness issues to consider, and will provide a checklist for attendees to complete that will provide a path forward to better prepare their ASTs for instances of flooding and storms.

You’ll learn about:

  • Experience-based results of storms on storage facilities including failure modes, mechanisms, and reasons for failure
  • Basic simple action plans that will reduce the potential for petroleum releases
  • How to make sure that emergency preparedness plans are updated to include actions to take when a storm is imminent
  • Design alternatives that are more robust to failure in the event of a severe storm
  • How to use local networks, mutual aid groups, and local business cooperation activities to assist in moving inventory to minimize the risk of very large-scale releases
