Preparing first responders for pipeline emergencies is a natural fit for the Danielle Dawn Smalley Foundation who recognized the need after a pipeline leak ignited and took the life of 17-year-old Danielle Dawn Smalley and her friend in 1996 while they were en route to report their concerns to authorities.
In the aftermath, it was realized that if it wouldn’t have been Danielle’s vehicle that ignited the vapors that day, it could have very well been the first responders who were headed towards the same path just moments before Danielle beat them there.
