PERIs in PHMSA's Western Region
|Colorado||In September 2018, PHMSA awarded the Colorado Oil and Gas Association (COGA) a Technical Assistance Grant to enlist a contractor to perform a comprehensive assessment of capabilities and needs of first response agencies across the State of Colorado regarding pipeline incidents and emergencies. PHMSA is continuing discussions about a PERI in Colorado with COGA and other stakeholders.||
|Montana||Montana has developed its own PERI-like collaborative program. Through the Montana Liquid and Gas Pipeline Association, pipeline operators are engaging at the LEPC meetings to train and educate emergency responders. PHMSA outreach is complete.||
|Oregon||In July 2019, PHMSA began discussions to initiate the Oregon PERI (ORPERI). PHMSA has held several meetings with OR stakeholders to discuss the PERI concept.||
