Chlorine PPE- What are You Comfortable with?
For smaller chlorine leaks (150 lb. cylinder or less) what would you be comfortable with PPE wise? The specific situation I am thinking of would be one where the leak could be fixed with simple tools in a small amount of time. Application of a c-clamp to the stem or at the most having to use an A-kit would be the maximum involvement.
Who would be alright with turnout gear, SCBA and decon with a hoseline? Who would want full level A with full decon line? I have heard it described and seen it done both ways, and I know what I would be ok with for this particular situation, but I was wanting the opinion of a few other people as well.
Remember, this is not a train or truck derailment, but simply a single 150 lb. or less cylinder leaking.
