Weekly Drill: No. 144 - Oil Burners

Drill #144: Oil Burners

Oil burners need regular maintenance to operate properly. When neglected they can cause problems for the fire department. Readers will learn what to do when confronted with oil burner mishaps.

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.
