The risk of fire is an ever present danger in the oil and gas business which is why drillers and producers have to be vigilant at all times. Fortunately there are those who come to the rescue when things go bad! Our picture this month is of “Oil field fire school” which is a training session put on by the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy Education Program (OGEEP) at its training center on the former ACDC property. Over 1400 Ohio firefighters have been thru the course which includes hands on training in realistic situations such
as putting out this tank battery fire. Our own Apple Creek Volunteer Fire Department helps provides equipment and personnel for this valuable program. For more information on oilfield firefighter training, visit OGEEP.org and for more pictures around East Union Township follow us on Instagram.
