Atmos Energy Trains First Responders in Gas Safety

Safety
November 3, 2017

Atmos Energy has trained more than 2,000 first responders from Abilene, TX to Biloxi, MS in natural gas safety and emergency response preparedness during the past year. Because we advise our customers and the public to call 911 and Atmos Energy if a natural gas emergency occurs, a seamless partnership is vital.

The Atmos Energy First Responder Natural Gas Workshops provide emergency response teams with detailed information and procedures to safely work around natural gas and carbon monoxide.

“Atmos Energy’s focus on safety remains our top priority. We are better equipped to respond to any emergency alongside local first responders if we have a common knowledge of each other’s operations and an active relationship with those responders,” Lead Employee and Organizational Development Jake Poulsen says. “As is true in any field, people with strong relationships understand how to work better together.”

Fire departments interested in signing up for the workshop should complete this form to connect with an area representative to assist.
