Fun with firefighting

The state and the Propane council came out and offered free propane fire training last week. It was very informative and lots of fun. Heres a few pics of it

Neat Pictures! The local fire departments around here have a training center where they put out propane tank fires also.

I was taking a Blow Out Preventer certification class many years ago. One exercise involved a propane torch. Around the burning flame were an extinguisher, a shovel and pile of sand, and a bucket of water. When told to put the flame out, several guys in the class tried all the methods available, before the instructor walked over and turned off the fuel valve.

The pics reminded me of that class, I had to attend every three years or so.

Hey Jarrod I'm a volunteer in my district, its pretty fun

hey Dave, at the local college there is a sweet training setup. They have a propane training area, with a tank, a propane truck, and a christmas tree looking setup that sprays it in all directions. It gets pretty wicked

They also have a 5 or 6 story concrete building that they burn in for training. Also have a flashover simulator. My dad went through all that a long time ago when he was getting classes. He's been on for 15 years and I've been on a year

Same kind of deal happened to me. During my salvage and overhaul class, we split up into teams and had to channel water out of the concrete building at the ground level. The water was coming from one story above, on top of a flight of stairs. It was a huge mess, folding up tarps in the form of the stairs was pretty complicating with all that water pouring down on us.

Before everyone started, the instructor told us that he could beat any of our times by himself. Of course we all finished, now its his turn. He walks over to the side of the building and shuts the water off

Dave have you ever put a full 20lb cylinder on a camp fire and let it heat up until it starts blowing pressure out the relief valve and then shoot it with a rifle? It will not explode, but it will make a huge fire ball!
