    Default Elevator Burn

    Has anyone ever done live fire training on old grain elevators? I've seen pictures and videos of large multi-county (and sometimes state) exercises in MN,SD, and IA. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with these types of exercises. If so what did you learn?

    P.S. Has anyone ever heard of or worked with the Iowa Large Structure Burn Team?

    intresting video.

    Is this a private company that contracts with the property owner to demo the building. then in turn the company contracts with the local volunteer companies for support and training opertunities?

    I'm not sure about the operations of the company.

    It looks like it benefits both the building owner and the local fire deaprtments.

    Don't know about the training on elevators, but we did respond to an elevator fire last July. total loss. Lot of ammonia tanks and railroad tracks alongside. Those were a concern.
