You’re the first on the scene to a propane incident

As a firefighter you have the potential to be dispatched to something new or a call you don’t have specialized equipment for. What happens when you’re the first department on scene to a propane incident and have nothing to work with. During the program we’ll discuss tactical options for just such an incident. You have more than you think would be my guess. We’ll look at evacuations, vapor management, management of heat sources allowing a tank to cool or manage how much it warms up. We’ll discuss the why, where, and how to correctly apply water. We will discuss freeze patching and the challenges of making it work well. We’ll look at past incidents and to see what happened and what we can learn from them and much more in the classroom. Then we’ll take a tour around several different size small cylinders including a side mount motor fuel tank, a MC-331 Bobtail and Transport prop and Underground tank system all while discussing tactical options for all of it. One of your best tools is sitting on your shoulders, let’s put some more fuel for thought in it.
