Partnering with local first responders is just one of the ways that Williams aims to raise the awareness of our pipeline facilities and help forge a better understanding of the role we all play in contributing to pipeline safety. We value these partnerships and encourage all emergency responders to visit the Safety and Environment section on the Williams website and take the training.
