Gas Safety Training

Fire School for Emergency Responders

Enhance Your Skills with Free, Hands-On Training

Emergency responders attending this free, one-day training course are given the opportunity to extinguish real natural gas pipeline fires at our training facility in Stanardsville, Virginia. We simulate several types of natural gas fires including:

  • Well head fires
  • Flange fires
  • Excavation damage

Each fire is ignited in a controlled setting using natural gas from the high-pressure pipeline operated by Columbia Gas Transmission. Participants are guided through field exercises by Columbia Gas of Virginia emergency responders.
