Refinery/Chemical Plant Fire Brigades/Departments
I am in a class about industrial fire protection for as part of my Associate's in Fire Science, and I have a couple questions about refinery fire brigades and departments.
First, what is the size of the brigade in terms of apparatus and manpower? Type (paid/volunteer)?
Second, on average how many calls do you average annually?
Of those responses how do they breakdown (fire, ems, hazmat, rescue, etc)?
How many are bonified fires?
Response protocols for a fire or hazmat?
If you can answer any of the questions, I would greatly appreciate it. We were supposed to visit a refinery as a field trip, cancelled. A member of a nearby refinery was supposed to come in and cancelled twice already. Thank you in advance!!
