Preparedness & Response
Planning and training are key elements of emergency preparedness.
All Tesoro Logistics facilities have emergency response plans that are primarily focused on keeping everyone safe. In addition, Tesoro Logistics and other Tesoro Corporation entities have put in place more than 40 administration business continuity plans to ensure that mission-critical business functions continue in the event of disruptions.
To prepare our employees to respond to any kind of incident, Tesoro Logistics and other Tesoro Corporation entities conduct emergency exercises more than 160 times per year at our refineries and terminals, with more than 9,000 employee-hours spent annually in support of incident response drills. Area organizations and officials are invited to train alongside incident response personnel and to offer suggestions for future improvements.
Tesoro Logistics participates in the National Preparedness for Response Exercise Program (PREP), which tests incident command organization. These exercises include full equipment deployment and a simulated oil spill.
