Increase support for local emergency responders.
Southwest Oregon Regional Safety Center
Environmental protection and the safety of our employees, contractors and the community are top priorities for Jordan Cove in the planning, construction and operations of the LNG Terminal.
The LNG Terminal is designed to meet stringent industry safety standards, codes and regulations. A number of safeguards, protections and mitigation measures, including cutting edge technologies and automatic emergency detection and shut-down systems, have been incorporated into the terminal’s design to ensure safe and secure operations and protection of the community and environment.
We’re following through on this commitment by building the Southwest Oregon Regional Safety Center (SORSC) at the South Dunes site and a Terminal Fire Station in the Utility Corridor. The SORSC will include:
- An Incident Command post for drills, exercises and emergencies with the Jordan Cove or Coos County;
- A technology center providing real time situational awareness and integrated communications to local agencies;
- A security center that will include personnel from the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, offices for the Port of Coos Bay and the U.S. Coast Guard, and a relocated Coos County 911 call center;
- Training rooms and an outdoor training area; and
- Qualified, trained and available U.S. Coast Guard staff at all times.
The Jordan Cove Fire Station will be built in a location suitable for providing a 4-minute response time in the event of a fire at the terminal. The Fire Station will house approximately 15 trained and dedicated firefighters, and be equipped with appropriate firefighting equipment.
