emergency response team
refinery alarm system
The El Segundo Refinery maintains a Refinery Alarm System throughout the facility that is capable of providing audible notifications to our employees of a possible emergency that may require their attention. Each plant within the refinery has its own alarm that can be activated independently. The alarm system is centrally controlled and activated by the refinery dispatcher at the direction of the Chevron Fire Department’s on-shift battalion chief.
Although the alarms are meant to notify refinery employees inside our fenceline, the alarms can occasionally be heard in the community. As a facility we work closely with local emergency response agencies. In the event of an emergency that warranted notification to the surrounding community, we engage these agencies to contact residents and businesses using their respective city’s notification system.
