The “Emergency Response to Propane Incidents” course consists of 3 hours of classroom using on screen presentations, display props and product demonstrations. The classroom portion is designed to provide the information needed to respond to and make an initial determinations if the incident is manageable or not (i.e. remain on site or evacuation). Lecture topics include: product properties, container types, flow control devices, flaring, emergency controls, relief valve issues, hydrostatic ruptures, over-pressurization problems & solutions.
The second half of the course builds on the first providing hands on experience using proven tactics to gain access to control systems. The practical experiences learned holding back a million BTU’s cannot be learned in the classroom. Hand line management in and out, water streams, nozzle usage, attack and/or defensive postures, team operations, communicating in high noise environments are all required to make an attack on a high-pressure gas fire. The BTU’s created are unlike any structural materials can produce.
