Over the past few weeks Fire Station 619 HazMat Team members have rotated through gas prop training with Washington Gas. The crews operated in their “Pipetown” training facility running hose lines to control valves, practiced protecting exposures and reviewed other types of gas leaks. The training coordinators discussed low and high pressure lines, commercial and residential meters, and provided advice for fire department responses. The staff would like to thank Washington Gas for hosting the training and BC Mike Johnson for setting up the schedule.
