The students will participate in on scene operations that include tank management, liquid and vapor flaring and the use of water as a tactical option building on what was learned in the classroom on an assortment of tanks or cylinders that we supply.

The students will see firsthand the limitations caused by system restrictions that limit flow, the importance of managing product levels and how temperature and pressure information is applied.  Flaring Propane with live demonstrations (live release if available based on jurisdiction) enforces the learning process and demonstrates an additional product management option.

Again, this course is designed to provide the student with the information needed to respond to, connect and manage a response on small and larger propane tanks with up to 2″ flow capacities utilizing multiple tactical options that include:

Venting to atmosphere

Freeze Patching

Liquid and Vapor flaring 

Water Injection Practical evolution

and more.
