Comprehensive disaster management drill for petroleum industrial complexes and other facilities
As an initiative during the Hazardous Materials Safety Week specified by the Fire and Disaster Management Agency of Japan,
we implement a comprehensive disaster management drill in June every year.
In the drill conducted in the No. 9 Area Oil Terminal of Marunaka Kosan in June 2010, it was assumed that oil leaked from a pier after occurrence of a powerful earthquake measuring level 6, and fire fighting vehicles, police vehicles and airplanes, as well as vessels including Shachikaze, a patrol boat of Nagoya Coast Guard Office, and Hekikai , an environmental survey boat of Nagoya Port Authority, were sent.
A wide range of actions were taken to check the first response system and cooperation with relevant agencies in case of an earthquake, including distribution of various information such as cautions and warnings, stretching of oil fences, acts to prevent further spreading of leaked oil, an exercise to rescue a person who fell into the sea and water discharge from a water cannon truck.
