Firefighters from across Ohio received hands-on natural gas and oil training at the new Wayne County Fire & Rescue Regional Training Facility recently, courtesy of the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program, according to a news release from the OOGEEP. Local firefighters who attended the Responding to Oilfield Emergencies Training were Spencer Heppner and Gregory Sowl of Chippewa Township Fire Department. 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.
