This presentation provides a practical fact filled, reality based, critical skills program that covers what fire officers and firefighters need to know to effectively and safely respond to natural gas and propane emergencies. Focus is on our mission of life safety for civilians, protection of our members using the kill box concept and tactical use of sweeping search procedures for large buildings with major uncontrolled leaks. It fills a huge training void that exists in strategy, tactics and training your members for natural gas emergencies, meter use and response procedures. Take homes from this program include: FD use of new laser based technology for explosive gas emergency size up, new tactics and strategies, sample/model SOPs and new innovative/creative/cost effective training methods and props that attendees can use in their home departments.
