MEDIA ALERT – Belmont College and Hess Corporation to Host Shale Safety Institute

A Fire and EMS safety training event will be held at Belmont College for local first responders to prepare them for oilfield emergencies.

 

WHO: Belmont College and Hess Corporation
WHAT: The Shale Safety Institute 2014, a partnership between Belmont College and Hess Corporation
WHEN: Saturday, November 15, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (event agenda below)
WHERE: Belmont College
68094 Hammond Road
St. Clairsville, Ohio 43950
WHY: Belmont College, in partnership with Hess Corporation, will be hosting more than 230 local first responders for the Shale Safety Institute 2014. This event is designed to educate and prepare local first responders, at no cost to them, when emergencies in the oilfield arise so that they can respond to incidents in a safe and confident manner. All participating first responders will receive continuing education certification. Local, state and federal level officials have been invited.
Training for multiple scenarios will be available, including: mass casualty incidents, incident command for oil and gas emergencies, water movement, and a clinical cadaver lab environment which will allow participants to examine airway and vascular techniques.
VISUALS: The training sessions will include unique photo and video opportunities. Two foam application sessions will allow first responders to spray special foam and allow them to become familiar with the use of firefighting foam through hands-on activities. A mass casualty session will train first responders on triage methods where they will practice skills on dolls that have been altered to represent emergency victims. Additionally, first responders will also have the opportunity to practice setting up a helicopter landing zone and participate in a STAT MedEvac helicopter landing.
INTERVIEWS: Belmont College and Hess will have a spokesperson available for comment.
CONTACT: For more information contact Julie Mamie, Public Relations Coordinator, at 740-699-3863 or jmamie@belmontcollege.edu.
