FF293 - Atmospheric Monitoring for the Initial Engine Company
Arriving first due on propane, natural gas, potential confined space, and other emergencies involving asphyxiant gases or events involving hazardous materials have the potential to displace oxygen and injure responders. This 4-hour in-service class is designed to review more than just pulling up first due on an engine and “Finding out what we got.” We will examine basic physical and chemical properties, basic functions of multigas detectors, how and when to use them on initial response, and how to use atmospheric monitoring as a risk-based response tool. Additionally, we will examine the typical behaviors of common fuel gases and the by-products of combustion and decomposition better known as Hydrogen Sulfide and Carbon Monoxide.
