There is nothing more important than the safety of our team, our customers and our communities. Training and preparing our current and future employees and contractors is critical to maintaining a skilled workforce. Completed in 2020, our Safety Town training center provides employees hands-on training and simulated on-the-job field experiences, which will help us maintain the integrity of our current infrastructure and future projects.
The two-acre training center is located on the Energy Lane Campus in Dover, Delaware. It features state-of-the-art training rooms, a pole barn for storage of large equipment and vehicles and numerous shed “homes,” custom built by students from Polytech High School, in Woodside, Delaware. The homes simulate an environment and conditions that our employees and contractors could encounter as they enter homes in the community.
