AEGIS Gas Utility-event
First Responder Accountability and Concerns
Wednesday, August 5, 2015 | 1:00pm to 2:00pm Online

Please register now for the next in the series of monthly webinars conducted by AEGIS Loss Control – First Responders Accountabilities & Concerns – which will be held on Wednesday, August 5, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, Eastern Daylight Time.

The webinar will focus on the appropriate response to emergency situations involving natural gas operations.  Natural gas utility field technicians who act as the utility’s first responders are many times the first trained people at the scene of a potential natural gas emergency or incident.  The decisions they make to protect life and property have a significant impact on public safety as well as the public’s confidence in the utility to deliver “safe and reliable” service.  The webinar will discuss the importance of the first responder’s actions and decision making at the scene of a reported natural gas odor, fire, broken main or service, explosion, and other possible natural gas incidents.  It will also discuss one company’s approach to field service technician training as well as their philosophy on emergency response, including interactions and relationships with fire department emergency personnel, use of engineering controls as they relate to employee and public safety, details of a unique fire department training program and a newly implemented company emergency responder training curriculum.

This webinar will be presented by Scott Powell, Director Safety Security & Compliance, and Randi Boswell, Senior Instructional Designer at Atmos Energy.
