Natural Gas Pipeline Safety

This information from Peoples helps emergency responders learn to safely identify and respond to incidents that involve natural gas pipelines. It includes a series of educational topics that you can complete at your own pace. These topics may also be accessed in a certification course by clicking the link above.

Peoples may distribute natural gas in your department’s response area. If Peoples is not the local natural gas provider or pipeline operator at an incident scene, please coordinate your gas incident response with the appropriate natural gas utility.

Please note: This information reflects industry best practices but is not intended as a substitute for formal tactical training or your organization’s guidelines. Please consult with your training officer to ensure all appropriate formal training has taken place, and be sure to follow your department’s SOPs/SOGs.
