The multi-day training — “Responding to Oilfield Emergencies” — is provided to first responders at no-cost by Ohio’s natural gas and oil producers and was the first to take place following a $150,000 OOGEEP donation to build two classrooms for the new, state-of-the-art facility. OOGEEP’s award-winning training exceeds state and federal fire safety standards and was the first program of its kind developed in the nation. In its 20th year, 19 firefighters were trained, bringing the total trained to more than 1,500 firefighters and first responders. The two-day training includes experience classroom presentations, virtual reality tabletop exercises, and live outdoor fire behavior labs. Local firefighters who attended the Nov. 7-8 session were Larry Mosti, Richard Wolf, and Michael Adams of the Toronto Fire Department. “There is no better class around,” praised Caleb Richmond of Brookfield Township Fire Department. “(The class) is the most look at this now realistic class I have ever taken. I learned so much that I have never even thought of.” OOGEEP’s training was collaboratively developed by natural gas and oil industry experts, regulatory agencies, firefighters and emergency responders. The training teaches common practices, references and standards used by the fire service and the natural gas and oil industry.
