INEOS Public Advisory Group (PAG) Honored with Risk Communication Award
On January 12, the INEOS Public Advisory Group (PAG) was honored by the Alliance for Chemical Safety, a local non-profit organization, for improving chemical safety in the Greater Cincinnati area.
The Alliance annually honors local companies, organizations and individuals for risk reduction and risk communication efforts.
The 10th annual awards ceremony took place at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.
The PAG was awarded a 2010 Risk Communication Excellence award for its long-time commitment to risk communication.
In existence since 1989, the INEOS PAG is one of the longest running community advisory panels in the Greater Cincinnati area.
The PAG currently serves as an advisory body to guide and direct INEOS ABS (USA) Corp. in Addyston, Ohio on decisions relative
to environmental health and safety issues that affect the community. PAG members also serve as a liaison to the community.
INEOS, formerly known by many names including Monsanto, Bayer, LANXESS and Lustran Polymers, manufactures various plastics used in health care, construction and automotive industries.
The PAG is comprised of local elected officials, emergency responders, school representatives, plant management, regulators
and numerous citizens.
â€śThe purpose of this group is to help us become a better neighbor in the communities we share with themâ€ť said Ken Schmidt,
Environmental, Health & Safety Manager at the INEOS plant. â€śWe do this by open, honest communication and not by holding
our cards close to our vest. Each meeting we share with them the good and the bad about our environmental safety performance.â€ť
PAG members cite improved transparency and an increase in technical knowledge and understanding of plant operations.
If you are interested in joining the PAG, or learning more about it, please contact third-party facilitator Deb Leonard at 513-515

recognition in the center of the parade route. Flags will be handed out to the people on the sidewalks. One hundred Antique
cars will carry veterans that are residents, work, or are connected to Miami Township in any way, and all of our Taylor Alumni
who are veterans, wherever they live. There are four ways you can help make this a memorable event and we invite you to do

Important Smoke Detector Update
Over the years we have become accustomed to using smoke
detectors to protect our lives and property. The most common smoke detector by far is the ionization type detector. It
is inexpensive and readily available. A group in Australia began studying smoke detectors and their impact on known
fires. Their findings were very interesting. The ionization
type detectors did not activate in a timely manner for the
slow smoldering fires that were studied. This concerned the
researchers so they ran some independent tests. The findings
were that the ionization type detector did a very poor job of
detecting the most common home fire, the smoldering type.
They then tried a photoelectric type detector and had excellent results for the smoldering type fire. This prompted a recommendation to include the photoelectric type detector for
the ultimate protection for homes. A total home protection
includes a photoelectric detector that is near the kitchen
(eliminates false trips), one in or near each bedroom. If you
are adding detectors, you can mount a photoelectric next to
your existing ionization detector. There is also a combination
detector that has both types in one detector. If you have any
questions you can call the Fire Department anytime. The
number is 353-4026.
Township Meeting Change
Starting with the April 27th meeting, The Board of Trustees will meet at the new Miami Township Administration Building on Shady Lane near Bridgetown. Please
