Risk Management Plan - EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 
(For further information contact:  Dennis Kachel at 785-622-4390)                                              
1. The Facility Policy 
The owners, management, and employees of Brady Grain, Inc. are committed to the prevention of any accidental releases of anhydrous ammonia. If an accidental release should occur, the facility is prepared to work with the local Fire Department, or other authorities, to mitigate any release and minimize the impact of the release to people and the environment. 
2. Facility Information 
- The primary activity at the facility is the storage of fertilizers for sale to farmers. 
- Anhydrous ammonia is received, stored, and distributed for direct application by our farmer customers for their crop production nutrients. 
- The maximum quantity stored would be   98,000    pounds in our  1   storage tank, and  12  nurse tanks. The maximum quantity handled would be the contents of a semi-truck unloading 44 
,000 pounds. 
3. The worst-case release scenario and the alternative release scenario. 
a. The worst-case release scenario would be the release of the total contents of a storage tank released as a gas over 10 minutes. The maximum quantity released would be   50,000   pounds, which represents the volume of a storage tank at 85 percent capacity as limited by design standards.  The distance to the endpoint (point of dispersion to 200 ppm ) is .67 miles. 
b. The alternative release scenario based on most likely potential incident, is a release from a break in a transfer hose. The distance to the endpoint (point of dispersion to 200 ppm) is .22 miles. 
4. The accidental release prevention program. 
This facility has implemented the provisions and the standards of the U.S Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 29 CFR 1910.111, "Storage and handling of anhydrous ammonia". 
5. The Five-year Accident History 
There have been no accidental releases of anhydrous ammonia in t 
he past five 
years that have caused any deaths, injuries, or significant property damage at the   
facility; nor to our knowledge, have resulted in offsite deaths, injuries,  
evacuations, sheltering in place, property damage, or environmental damage. 
6. The emergency response program. 
 - This facility has: 
A. A written emergency action plan, in accordance with OSHA standard,  29 CFR 1910.38. 
B.  Provided state and local authorities the emergency community  right-to-know information as required under planning aid SARA Title Ill (EPCRA). 
C. A written emergency response program, in accordance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120, including  pre-emergency planning and employee training. 
7. Planned changes to improve safety. 
Safety improvement is an on-going process at the facility.  Periodic evaluations  
are performed to assess the maintenance of safe conditions. There are no      
additional specific anhydrous ammonia safety recommendations for  
implementation at this time.
