Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Offers First Responder Natural Gas Safety Program

Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania partnered with the Northeast Gas Association to offer a free First Responder Natural Gas Safety Training Program through December 14. 

The free interactive online course is provided through the NGA and was developed in partnership with emergency and training professionals to provide first responders with the information needed to safely identify and respond to incidents that involve natural gas pipelines and other natural gas facilities. 

“At Columbia Gas, safety is a core component of our culture, our work, and our company,” said Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Vice President and General Manager Mike Davidson. “If there is a natural gas emergency, firefighters are often the first responders on the scene, and our First Responder Natural Gas Safety Training Program gives them valuable skills to help safely manage these situations.” 

Additionally, Columbia Gas is also offering a $1,000 grant or in-kind contribution for the fire department with the most course completions from September 14 to December 14, 2020 in each of the four Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania service territories. In case of a tie, the department with the most course completions first will receive the contribution.
