The exercise is designed to build up ability of taking on-the-spot action to restore damages on the intermediate pipe.
Daesung Energy (President: Kang Suk-ki) conducted on September 3 an emergency mobilization exercise to restore simulated damages on city gas supply facilities in Dalseo-gu, Daegu City.
The emergency mobilization exercise is designed to build up capabilities of settling emergency situation through quick on-the-spot action and emergency restoration by setting up a hypothetical situation and unexpectedly issuing orders to mobilize.
Through the exercise conducted on September 3, the company examined ability of emergency mobilization by issuing an order to mobilize by setting up a hypothetical situation that gas is leaking due to damages on the intermediate pipe near a district pressure regulation station in Songhyeon-dong, Daelseo-gu, Daegu caused by an earthquake in the region. At the order, the situation room quickly delivered messages to all patrol vehicles, and the vehicle that first arrived at the site reported on-the-spot situation and controlled the situation. And they quickly blocked the valve and immediately restored damages. Unsatisfactory points found in the course of exercise will be immediately improved.
Executive Director for Technology Lee Seok-hyeong at Daesung Energy said, “Like the recent accident of rear-end collision of trains, wrong judgment of hands-on employees may result in an enormous accident.” And he stressed the importance of first counter action saying, “Given that mistake in judging situation in early stage of city gas accident may cause fatal damages, employees need to build up ability of correctly grasping the situation and properly responding when emergency situation occurs with a thought that each one is the first arriver.”
Daesung Energy has been conducting emergency mobilization exercises for protecting gas supply facilities once in a quarter by branches, assuming various situations. And it is continuously conducting exercises in preparation for unexpected emergency situation, including monthly emergency mobilization exercise being conducted in the evening by sectors with participation of all employees.
