Gas Safety Training
Emergency responders who understand the properties and characteristics of natural gas and propane, and the procedures for responding to gas-related emergencies, are better prepared to protect their own lives and those they serve. Florida Public Utilities has Regional Safety Advisors who can help firefighters, training officers and other personnel develop the skills they need to facilitate and implement this training.
