Gibson Co. Utility District hosts first-responder training

GIBSON COUNTY, Tenn. — Dozens of first responders gathered Monday night at the Gibson County Utility District headquarters to learn how to best respond to collisions involving natural gas vehicles. The utility is considered the “greenest” natural gas refueling station in the state, and 14 of the 25 vehicles in the utility’s fleet run on compressed natural gas, according to a release from the utility. Mike Batten, president of Mid West Energy Solutions, the company that built the Gibson County station, helped lead the training. Officials with the utility say they hope to have their entire fleet running on compressed natural gas within the next two years.
