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.
We offer Safety School to local volunteer fire departments to learn how to safely respond to natural gas incidents. This includes a classroom session and hands-on outdoor training, which gives you an opportunity to extinguish four types of natural gas fire incidents, including:
- Surface fire – simulates an area that caught on fire with gas migrating to a surface.
- Stack fire – simulates a well fire.
- Flange fire – simulates an above-ground regulator station or meter setting fire.
- Pit fire – simulates a fire in an excavation pit.
