NW Natural Training Center

We train first responders and employees

As part of our commitment to safety, NW Natural has built a “Training Center” at our Sherwood Operations and Training Center in Sherwood, Ore. The Training Center includes Training Town, classrooms and labs for fire departments and NW Natural first responders.

Training Town

See how we train fire departments.

The first of its kind in the Northwest, the NW Natural Training Town provides field employees and local firefighters with training experience in emergency response, as well as operation and maintenance of our gas system. The mock neighborhood offers hands-on, scenario-based training and replicates real-world conditions with functioning underground natural gas lines, house meters, and a variety of gas appliances inside the homes.
