PSE trained Bainbridge Island Fire Department employees in Electric High Voltage Safety

Over three days in October, PSE trained the Bainbridge Island Fire Department on Electric High Voltage Safety. We offer this training to all first responders – both to new staff and as a refresher for existing employees.
After the training, first responders are able to identify, understand, and practice safety measures when responding to emergency calls related to or next to power lines, poles, or other electrical grid infrastructure. 

“Puget Sound Energy recognizes the critical importance of having strong partnerships with our local emergency first responders to effectively mitigate the risks associated with downed power lines,” says Kenneth Lulow, PSE’s Electric First Response Trainer.
