Hartfield-based Revere Gas recently received two top safety awards from the Preferred Energy Group, the company’s insurance carrier. This is the sixth straight year the company has won a top award from PEG.

During PEG’s annual meeting, Revere received the Vice President’s Safety Award and the Chairman’s Safety Award.

The awards are based on insurance claims and safety measures that Revere and its employees take, including safety training and safe fuel handling procedures among others, said Jay Hilliard, safety and fleet director for Revere.

The Vice President’s Safety Award recognizes an exceptional level of safety achievement over the last year, said Jim Trotter, the company’s director of sales and marketing, while the Chairman’s Safety Award recognizes the best overall safety performance among the PEG members for the three most recent years.

Hilliard said Revere specializes in propane gas, with offices in Hartfield, Gloucester, Warsaw, Williamsburg, Providence Forge and Burgess.
