Responding to Utility Emergencies

Welcome to Puget Sound Energy’s Emergency Responder Training Website

The public safety officer is typically first on the scene when utilities are damaged, whether in response to a downed power line due to a vehicle accident or an excavator digging into a natural gas pipeline.

Puget Sound Energy is providing this website to help emergency responders recognize potential hazards involving electricity and natural gas and the necessary guidelines to assure their safety and that of the general public.

"This is an excellent site. The training provided gives important information to the broad spectrum of responders. Being online, it allows those that don’t normally get to the classroom an opportunity to take this training. I highly recommend it."
