Four volunteer fire departments in Westmoreland County are among more than 50 in Western Pennsylvania that will receive donations from Chevron.
The corporation will donate $232,500 to volunteer fire departments in Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The donations will be distributed among 76 first-response fire departments serving the areas where Chevron operates.
In Westmoreland County, Hutchinson Station 85 and Turkeytown departments will each receive $9,000; Rillton, $7,500; and Forbes Road, $1,500.
Other donations include $60,000 for fire departments in Fayette County; $36,000 in Greene County; and $24,000 in Washington County. Fire departments in Marshall County, W.Va., will share $42,000.
Chevron said fire departments will receive $1,500 for each of Chevron's well pads in the department's primary service area.
The company announced the donation during a symbolic check presentation at Republic Volunteer Fire Department in Fayette County, which received a donation of $10,500. Chevron has developed seven well pads in that department's service area.
In addition, Chevron has joined Wild Well Control Inc. to provide training to emergency responders to ensure they are adequately prepared to respond to a potential emergency at a well site. Training for fire companies in Chevron's operating area will be scheduled and conducted on an ongoing basis.
The first training session will be held on Oct. 23 and will be offered to emergency responders in Somerset and eastern Fayette County.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
