Tactical Fire Problem – LNG Odorant Station

This week our tactical Fire Problem is a leak at an odorant station on a gas pipeline. If you are unfamiliar with these facilities do some research into the product, potential pressures and the chemical Mercaptan.

1.) If the leak is before odorant you will not smell the gas. Is your meter calibrated for methane / propane / ethane?

2.) What is your plan for a high pressure (600-800 psi) leak?

3.) What are the properties of the product?

4.) What is your relationship and familiarity with the contact people you will need to interact with?

5.) What will happen if this is just a Mercaptan leak and not a gas leak?

Tactical Fire Problem – Old Downtown Area

This week the Tactical Fire Problem involves an older downtown area.

1.) What is your B I R (Brief Initial Report) in C A N format?

2.) What additional resources will you need? (Figure this out with apparatus and manpower and then figure out how long it will take for those resources to arrive)

3.) What does the age of the building have to do with potential for fire spread?

4.) What obstructions to ladder work are present? What does that mean for the tactics?

5.0 What size line and how long to make the stretch to the fire room? How about to the floor above?

If you need further training on your downtown area on fire, please contact Captain Joe Pronesti from Elyria Ohio Fire at efd33@gmail.com. Captain Pronesti has extensive training on this very topic.
