AmeriGas representatives were among the more than 200 attendees who joined Chester County Commissioners, staff from the Department of Emergency Services and first responders to celebrate the May 15 ribbon cutting at the Chester County Public Safety Training Campus Tactical Village. AmeriGas donated tanks, parts and fittings for propane-fueled fire training stations at the center and was named as one of the top corporate donors.
“I believe this is a tremendous opportunity for AmeriGas to further enhance our commitment and involvement within the community,” says AmeriGas Area Director Mike Taylor. “The new tactical village is a state-of-the-art facility that will benefit thousands of people living in both Pennsylvania and Delaware. For us at AmeriGas to be able to partnership in such an important and worthy endeavor promotes a sense of pride that is difficult to duplicate.” At AmeriGas safety is our highest priority which makes sponsoring projects like these an easy decision. We always put the safety of our customers, community and employees at the forefront and this training facility will help prepare thousands of first responders each year on how to handle a propane emergency.
Four 1,000-gallon tanks and four 2,000-gallon tanks fuel simulators used to train fire and rescue personnel. One simulator replicates a car fire, while another replicates a fire in a multi-story apartment complex.
