As the Delco Times reported this week a variety of emergency services worked in conjunction with Energy Transfer representatives in a day-long fair and demonstration.
Emergency personnel from Boothwyn, Claymont, and Chester Township Fire Departments, the Delaware County Sheriffs Department and Delaware County Emergency Services were on hand to discuss safety plans and answer general questions.
Lower Chichester police chief Thomas Gaspari described the event as “informative” and the “perfect opportunity for people to come and meet our emergency personnel.”
This event is in contrast to the narrative that anti-pipeline activists propagate, insisting on bad community stewardship from Energy Transfer and other pipeline operators. Lower Chichester, and the many other counties represented on Saturday, are part of the thousands that the company engages on a regular basis around safety awareness and emergency preparedness.
It is encouraging to see Energy Transfer continue their commitment to the Commonwealth by creating thousands of good paying jobs and prioritizing safety on site and in communities throughout the state.
