Valparaiso Safety Day Presentation Next Wednesday at the Porter County Expo Center
Enertech, Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and Utility Resource Group will present the video and photo friendly Valparaiso Safety Day on Wednesday, March 21st, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at the Porter County Expo Center 4-H Building, 215 E. Division Rd., Valparaiso. This free event brings first responders, utility, oil & gas, municipal, and county personnel together to take part in dynamic hands-on scenario safety training of a staged pipeline rupture – as close to the real thing as possible. A presentation on the Indiana Dig Law begins at 8:30, going over rules and regulations and the need to call 811 prior to any excavation in order to get underground utilities located before excavation. At 12:30 attendees have the rare opportunity to experience a mock natural gas line strike showing what happens when a natural gas line is struck by mechanized digging equipment, and what steps need to be taken in the immediate aftermath.
