Columbia Pipeline Group will be donating personal gas detection monitors to the Kenova and Ceredo Volunteer Fire Departments in Wayne County, West Virginia CPG announced Aug. 4.

The two departments were chosen because they commonly work with CPG’s Kenova Compressor Station, said spokesman Scott Castleman.

“We try to work closely with fire departments in our area,” Castleman said. “Typically if we identify equipment that they need, we’ll provide them with it.

“We do things like this throughout the year with first responder groups.”

The equipment will be given to members of both departments on Tuesday, Aug. 5, at CPG's Kenova Compressor Station located at 70 Big Sandy Rd. in Kenova at 6 p.m. CPG representatives will also give VFD members a tour of the Kenova facility during the event.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Columbia Pipeline Group employed 457 people and operated 34 compressor stations, 16 storage fields and more than 2,500 pipeline miles in West Virginia in February 2013.
