Propane Fire Training at CCPSTC
By Minquas Fire Company No. 2
May 17, 2017

During weekly training, crews went to the Chester County Public Safety Training Center (CCPSTC) to train for propane tank fires. Instructors explained how to approach a propane tank fire and how to safely reach and shut the value of the tank. Crews then went through multiple evolutions to become more proficient with this type of fire. While there are many homes that have propane tanks outside their house for various uses, it becomes more of a thought in the summertime with grilling and BBQs. Remember, if you smell propane or any other gas, or think something is wrong, don't hesitate to call 9-1-1 and have the fire dept. respond.
