Course Description

This three-day course is designed to expand the knowledge and skills of firefighters and non-firefighters responding to and successfully mitigating large atmospheric storage-tank emergencies. Firefighters are involved in hands-on live fire evolutions, while non-firefighters in the class will be assigned to field observation. The course will combine classroom lecture and small group activities with field observation and hands-on skill practice, utilizing live-fire simulations of bulk-storage emergencies. The course will conclude with a capstone live-fire field response to the largest atmospheric storage tank fire prop in North America.


There are no prerequisites for this course.
