Paradigm Liaison Meetings

Paradigm brings together operators and emergency officials for liaison purposes; implementing nearly 1,100 face-to-face programs annually, with over 71,500 people in attendance. These liaison meetings assist operators with focused compliance efforts for API RP 1162 and 49 CFR 192.615 and 616 / 49 CFR 195.402403 and 440. At local meetings, both operator and emergency official exchange information regarding systems and capabilities to plan accordingly.

Driving meeting attendance requires dynamic outreach efforts. While direct mailed invitations are the focal point of outreach, Paradigm also utilizes email, telephone, and fax communications to fill the seats with qualified emergency officials. The communications are then married to meeting attendance rosters utilizing a sign and capture solution.

All the program elements, copies of the attendee materials, effectiveness measurement statistics, capabilities reports, and attendance details are precisely documented and delivered to each participating operator.


Pipeline Safety Awareness & Emergency Response Programs are presented by Paradigm Liaison Services. In Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania 811 liaison team will be available during each meeting to offer education regarding the One Call notification process.
