Commitment

Westlake is a pipeline operator commit-ted to the protection of the public and the environment through the safe op-eration and maintenance of its pipeline systems. Westlake s qualified personnel are trained in emergency response activi-ties and regular participation in drills and exercises reflecting various types of re-sponse levels, emergency scenarios and environmental sensitivities.

Westlake has committed the necessary resources to fully prepare and implement its emergency response plans and has obtained through contact the necessary private personnel and equipment to re-spond, to the maximum extent practical, to a worst case fire, explosion or dis-charge of gas.

Communications

Westlake utilizes its 24 hour pipeline emergency phone number (1-800-375-4629) for receiving notice of events which require immediate response by Westlake emergency response personnel. West-lake maintains resources and capabilities to respond to pipeline emergencies. On-site communications are conducted using cellular telephones, 800 MHz radios and/or land-line telephone systems from com-pany facilities and offices.

Incident Command System

Westlake utilizes an expandable Incident Command System. Depending upon the size and complexity of an incident, ad-ditional company or contract personnel may be added as needed. Incident Com-mand maintains procedures for commu-nication with federal, state or local agen-cies. Communications are integrated into the Incident Command System by utiliz-ing the Mutual Aid System which is a Uni-fied Command Structure. The Mutual Aid System can be used to request additional manpower and equipment from local public officials and industries. Addition-

ally, the CAER (Community Awareness Emergency Response) radio system al-lows Westlake to provide notification and informs industry and the community of potential and/or actual hazardous materi-als emergencies.

Leak Response Equipment

Westlake maintains emergency response Haz-Mat Trailers and equipment at West-lake facilities in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Additional equipment on hand includes firefighting equipment, boats, motors, hand tools, power tools, pumps, hoses, personal protective equipment, first aid and miscellaneous supplies. Emergency response trailers are maintained within the Lake Charles complex.
