2.) How much fuel might you find on board one of these vessels?
3.) Have you ever been on board and/or preplanned one of these vessels if you have them in your response area?
4.) What other agencies might be involved in assisting you for this emergency? What is their response time to your area? Have you trained and preplanned with them?

This week we move away from our standard structural and suburban incidents and move toward the shore line a bit. Take a look.

2.) What is the construction like and what will it take to extinguish creosote soaked timbers?
3.) How are you going to deal with the “under” pier fire?
4.) What marine resources do you have to assist you, and can they get access to the underside?
Can you use foam or another agent and what are the potential risks if any in using it?
