EQT Corporation recently sponsored participants from local emergency services to attend the 2019 Williams Fire and Hazard Control: Xtreme Fire and Hazard Training Program in College Station, Texas. The 11 participants were from Allegheny, Greene and Washington Counties; Belmont County, Ohio and Wetzel County, West Virginia.

The training was a week-long program in which attendees participated in hands-on training to extinguish fuel-fed fires in a controlled environment, worked with fire-fighting foam to achieve vapor suppression and extinguishment on tank fires, and learned how to move large volumes of water and foam to extinguish industrial fires.
