Marcellus Shale Taskforce reports to commissioners

The safety committee, reported by Pike County emergency management director Roger Maltby, said that the companies have been in communication with first responders in their areas. “We are holding trainings on how to respond to any emergency,” he said. “If there are incidents at a drill site, our role is to secure the area around the site while the companies specialists arrive, which is usually quickly.”
