HRPDC Launches Regional Training Site

FOG Certification BannerHRPDC recently launched HRFOG.com, a new website designed to help localities inform and train individuals working in the food service industry on proper maintenance of grease control devices and the harmful effects of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) on the region’s sanitary sewer systems. The site offers two FOG certification programs: one for food service establishment employees and one for grease haulers. Certification is required by some local ordinances.

“We're thrilled to announce that we now have a central resource for the region's grease haulers and food service employees to receive the education and training required to help prevent harmful sanitary sewer overflows that are caused by improper handling and disposal of grease” said Julia B. Hillegass, public information and community affairs administrator for the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission.

Employees can quickly and easily become certified by registering to take the free test available at HRFOG.com. The website also offers a wealth of training materials and resources from detailed presentations and step-by-step instructional guides, to posters that can be downloaded and printed for display above kitchen sinks.
