This week, Corsicana Fire Rescue received a donation from Energy Transfer’s Corsicana operation for training in confined spaces and equipment in order to respond to Confined Space incidents. The $12,200 check was presented to Fire Rescue Chief Paul Henley.
“Giving back to communities where we work and live is one of our core values at Energy Transfer,” said Jamil Johnson, Director of Pipeline Operations in Central Texas.
“Central to this is maintaining a strong relationship with our local first responders by working and training together.”
Energy Transfer is one of the largest and most diversified midstream energy companies in the United States, with nearly 90,000 miles of pipelines traversing 38 states transporting oil and gas. Thirty percent of the nation’s natural gas and crude oil moves on these pipelines.
“Energy Transfer has instances where they do repairs and inspections in small, tight spaces,” Chief Henley stated.
“We will use these funds for specialized training. Allowing us to use their facility as a training area for these types of emergencies is a significant benefit to our department and makes us better first responders.”
