DGMK WebSeminar: Blowout contingency planning and establishment of a technical contingency reserve for underground storage facilities.

16:00 - 17:00
Zoom online


Based on a brief explanation of the requirements, the objectives of emergency preparedness specifically for the blowout of a storage well are derived. The history of the cooperation "Storeman - Storage Emergency Management" is then discussed and an overview of the organization and the current service portfolio is given. In this context, some aspects such as interfaces to other emergency forces, exercises and external impact / public relations are discussed in more detail.
