Emergency preparedness and response

The Billings Refinery supports a volunteer unified emergency response team, including a full-time emergency response supervisor, a 24-member fire brigade, a 10-member rescue squad and a 12-member oil-spill response team. Training includes advanced oil-spill recovery on rivers, emergency medical response with high-angle rope rescues and industrial firefighting. We have mutual aid agreements with area firefighting and rescue teams and our teams participate in community-wide or regional drills.
