EMERGENCY RESPONDER TRAINING - FIRE AND POLICE PERSONNEL

This 60-minute training program is specific to Mesa’s natural gas system; where the system is located and how the system is operated.  While the training also includes the basics of natural gas, the important message is to improve efficiencies between utilities and local emergency responders/public officials to be better prepared in the event of an emergency. Call 480-644-6423 or email to schedule your training.
