Woodinville firefighter Pat Imboden participated in a pipeline safety training program in 2012 which made his department eligible to receive the training check. The money will be used for training firefighters on how to properly use gas monitoring equipment carried on Woodinville fire engines.
The Williams Pipeline, known as the Northwest Pipeline, moves high pressure natural gas from the Canadian border to New Mexico, running north and south through Woodinville, east of Paradise Road.
The pipeline size ranges from 4 to 36 inches in diameter.
The Williams Company and Woodinville Fire & Rescue continue to build strong relationships through training to ensure that in the event of an emergency they work together to solve any issues.
The transportation of natural gas through pipelines continues to be a very safe way to get natural gas from the manufacturing facilities to homes and businesses.
