are more than 2.3 million miles of pipelines in the United States
today. With that much pipe underground, it’s no surprise that some
pipelines are located on or near school property. Although pipelines
are considered the safest method of fuel transportation, emergencies
can occur. Colonial wants to help you keep your school, your
students, and your staff “pipeline smart.”
We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to pipeline safety preparedness for your school, featuring “The 5 Steps to a ‘Pipeline Smart’ School.” Please consider sharing the guide with administrators and office staff, teachers, custodians, bus drivers, crossing guards, students, and parents.

Considerations for Schools
- Do you know if there are pipelines located on or near your school property?
- Do you know the signs and hazards of a pipeline leak?
- Do you have an emergency response plan for your school?
