|Abstract:||"This emergency plan is designed to anticipate and plan courses of action to deal with possible medical emergencies and catastrophic events at the Kilauea Middle East rift zone geothermal project site, Figure 1, that could cause the health, safety and welfare of project personnel and other personnel present within the project site or residing near project activity to be seriously affected or endangered. Catastrophic events that could directly endanger personnel in the project site include volcanic activity (eruptions and lava flows, cracks and subsidence, earthquakes and faulting) fire, severe storms including hurricanes, and well blowouts. Natural events could result in the failure or destruction of facilities so as to cause extended venting of geothermal resources in which case there could be high levels of H2S at the site of failure and exceedence of H2S emmission limits at property boundaries. Medical emergencies are anticipated to include serious injury, burns, or over exposure to some process or by-product (e.g., H2S) of project operations due to accidents, equipment or facility failure, or natural phenomena."|
