This Pipeline Fighters Hub webinar focuses on the critical safety concerns with carbon pipelines, and what can happen in the worst case scenario of a CO2 pipeline rupture — like what happened in Satartia, Mississippi in 2020.

The discussion includes Dan Zegart — the journalist who covered the shocking details of the Satartia pipeline rupture that sent dozes to the hospital, and months later continued to cause health issues for the victims, in his story “The Gassing of Satartia.”

The panel also features two first responders who were present on the scene at Satartia  – Jack Willingham, Director, Yazoo County Emergency Management Agency (Yazoo City, Mississippi); and Jerry Briggs, Warren County Fire Coordinator (Vicksburg, Mississippi).
