Hazmat Training
MONDAY AND TUESDAY, MAY 22 AND 23, 2006. TWO-DOZEN MARION CITY AND TOWNSHIP FIRE FIGHTERS RECEIVED ADVANCED TRAINING CRITICAL TO HANDLING AN EMERGENCY INVOLVING HIGHWAY CARGO TANK TRUCKS.

THE FIREFIGHTERS ARE ALL HAZMAT TECHNICIANS, AND THEIR JOB IS TO RESPOND TO AND STOP IF POSSIBLE THE ACCIDENTAL RELEASE OF CHEMICALS FROM A TANK TRUCK.

THE TRAINING WAS CONDUCTED BY SAFE TRANSPORTATION TRAINING SPECIALISTS, A COMPANY FROM CARMEL, INDIANA, THAT HAS BEEN PROVIDING TRAINING TO THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY AND EMERGENCY RESPONDERS SINCE 1996.

THE TWO DAY CLASS WAS HELD AT THE MARION FIRE DEPARTMENT STATION #3 AND WAS PAID FOR BY FUNDS FROM THE PUCO AND MARION COUNTY LOCAL EMERGENCY PLANNING COMMITTEE.

UNDERSTANDING HOW A CARGO TANK IS DESIGNED, CONSTRUCTED AND OPERATED IS CRITICAL TO THE ACTIONS TAKEN BY EMERGENCY RESPONDERS. THE TRAINING PROVIDED IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THOSE ASPECTS OF THE TANKER. THE EXACT, FULL-SCALE PROPS USED IN THE TRAINING ALLOWED THE FIREFIGHTERS TO EXAMINE CLOSE-UP THE VARIOUS VALVES, PIPES AND EMERGENCY DEVICES.

I took some Pictures of the Zumro Inflatable Shelter during our training on Thursday. It takes about 3 minutes to fully inflate and seems to be a very nice piece of equipment.
