The Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program (OOGEEP) is now accepting registrations for our 2017 firefighter workshops! These FREE workshops are facilitated by OOGEEP, funded 100% by Ohio's oil and gas producers, and are also endorsed by the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association, Ohio Fire and Emergency Service Foundation and the Ohio Society of Fire Service Instructors.
While responding to oilfield emergencies is rare, it can be challenging. Join more than 1,400 Ohio firefighters, and emergency responders from 7 other states, that have taken this class to learn common practices, references and standards used by both the oil and gas industry and the fire service. The two-day training will focus on incorporating classroom presentations, activities and "hands-on fire behavior labs" to offer insight into how oil and gas is explored, drilled and produced, and the importance of establishing a unified command in the event of an emergency.
Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will receive a certificate of attendance, an "Oilfield Emergency Response Training" patch and challenge coin, class photo, field guide, spill response kit, Class B Foam and many other materials. (Reciprocating patches and challenge coins are greatly appreciated). Participants will also receive documentation for up to 12 CEU contact credit hours. These CEU credits must be approved by each department's Fire Chief in accordance with State Fire Training regulations.
The training workshops will be held at the Wayne County Fire and Rescue Training Facility near Wooster. Attendees are required to bring turnout
gear and a SCBA to participate in the live burns.
