Weekly Drill: No. 128 - Vehicle Fires

The components used in manufacturing new vehicles include components with extremely hazardous elements that can harm firefighters making a fire attack.


Drill #128: Vehicle Fires

The components used today in the manufacturing of new vehicles are an exhaustive list, with many of these components using some extremely hazardous elements. This drill will go over some of those hazards and the precautions that need to be taken.

The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.

Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.

Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
