Two easy ways to learn more about natural gas safety
We’re proud to partner with firefighters, police officers and emergency management officials in our communities. We train hundreds of first responders each year so they know how to react during an emergency. We offer two programs for emergency responders.
Interactive online course
Provided by the Northeast Gas Association (NGA), this online course is a free, self-directed online training that provides emergency response personnel with the information they need to safely identify and respond to natural gas incidents. The training was developed with you in mind. The NGA partnered with local fire chiefs and training professionals and offers this course to earn additional training hours, at your own pace.
Columbia Gas Safety School
As part of Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania’s commitment to support local first responders that help to keep our communities and customers safe, we conduct Safety School training for fire department personnel to educate them on how to safely respond to natural gas situations.
The free training is taught by Columbia Gas training professionals with years of experience in the natural gas industry. The sessions include classroom instruction and hands-on training, which feature real-world scenarios that first responders may encounter.
*Please note the 2020 in-person safety school sessions have been canceled due to COVID-19 safety precautions. We anticipate holding on-site sessions again in 2021. Continue to check this page for updates.
