Event Details

PG&E presents the First Responder Workshop specifically tailored to CERT members.  We encourage all ESVs to participate however, as the information provided may help to protect yourself or the public in the event of a utility related emergency.   

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Identifying important components of natural gas and electric utility infrastructure and recognizing emergency conditions.
  • Using best practices to handle utility-specific emergencies and tactical considerations when on the scene of a gas or electric emergency.
  • Identifying the dangers of electric step and touch potential, and avoiding contact with energized sources.
  • Responding to natural gas hazards (HazMat) and avoiding dangers presented by migrating natural gas as well as secondary ignition sources.
  • How to access and utilize the PG&E First Responder website, which provides first responders secure access to free downloadable maps and information about natural gas transmission lines, natural gas storage facilities, and shut-off valves.
  • Gain knowledge about PG&E's updated natural gas emergency response plans and response checklists.

This is an excellent class to supplement your CERT training during Unit 2: Fire Safety and Utility Controls
