ANGEL FIRE NM – Northern New Mexico Gas Company, the area’s leading propane delivery and service provider, has partnered with the New Mexico Propane Gas Association (NMPGA) to provide a “Propane Emergencies Training” program for area firefighters and emergency responders.
The Propane Emergencies program is a comprehensive training program adopted by 27 state firefighter academies and is specifically targeted to issues of propane behavior and container design.
“The type of information that is taught in this program can be extremely beneficial in that it allows for the emergency responders to have an inside look at equipment and real life applications during live scenarios”, says Penny Peryatel, Northern New Mexico Gas Company President. “Teaming with the NMPGA has also allowed us to have access to their [NMPGA] instructor’s”, says Peryatel.
Area fire companies have been invited and confirmed for this event, where they will experience live burn scenarios, classroom briefings and meals. More information can be seen on the Northern New Mexico Gas Company website at www.NORTHERNnmGAS.com.
