New York association to host propane safety training

August 21, 2018 By    

In partnership with NOCO Energy, the New York Propane Gas Association will host a propane safety training conference for emergency responders from 1:45-3:45 p.m. on Aug. 25 at Bergholz Fire Co. in Niagara Falls, New York. The conference is part of an annual series of emergency responder training the association hosts in addition to other safety training programs offered each year.

“This conference demonstrates the industry’s continued commitment to the safety and well-being of fire service, emergency responders and the public,” says Michael DiGiorgio, lead instructor for the course. “The propane industry has hosted training programs like this all over the country for several years now, reaching hundreds of thousands of firefighters, emergency responders and propane professionals.”

The day will begin with a series of classroom sessions and will conclude with field training, which will feature live propane fire demonstrations.

“The health and safety of our employees and our propane customers is of paramount importance to NOCO,” says Tom Anderson, vice president, environmental, health and safety at NOCO. “We strongly support these types of initiatives that bring together emergency responders to learn best practices about propane safety.”
