Gas Emergency Response

The National Gas Emergency Response Advisory Committee (NGERAC) was established in May 2005 as part of a Memorandum of Understanding on the National Gas Emergency Response Protocol. The NGERAC comprises representatives of governments and all sectors of the gas industry and gas users. The Committee is responsible for:
