Motorists in Crescent City may see some unusual activity in the Del Norte County Fairgrounds parking lot Tuesday, as propane delivery drivers take part in a special training day. According to Chris Fleming, Director of Special Projects at Blue Star Gas, the all-day training will take place in the south end of the parking lot near the fair office.
Drivers will then navigate a series of cones and obstacles in the lot in order to master a series of maneuvers. One can expect to see a couple Blue Star delivery trucks and other vehicles.
“We just wanted to make people aware of what we are doing today,” Fleming said, noting that local law enforcement agencies have also been notified. He said about 13 drivers from five western states will be taking part in the training.
The training area will be cordoned off with traffic cones and off limits to regular vehicles.
Training starts at 8 a.m. and concludes at 5 p.m. Blue Star Gas has a long history of local gas service, operating the utility in Crescent City since 1957.
