    Default Information Request

    I am in the process of developing a draft response SOG for our department and was looking for input.

    How do your respective departments respond to the following: (keeping in mind staffing, apparatus, full alarm, etc...

    1) Smell of gasoline
    2) Smell of LPG- Propane
    3) C0 Detector activated
    4) Gas spill


    Are most of your responses utilizing a haz mat team?


    Thanks

    All of the above if they come in as what is listed get a one engine response (3-4 people). If there are extenuating circumstances, then a rescue or another engine may go. Usually it just is dispatched for one engine to investigate.

    1) Smell of gasoline---Engine company.
    2) Smell of LPG- Propane---Out doors one Engine,indoors a box alarm. (2 Eng. 1 ladder 1 rescue.)
    3) C0 Detector activated--- One Engine,99% of the time its a battery problem,please but please dont call haz-mat for that----open the window!.
    4) Gas spill---Depends on the beast. If it is a tanker rolled over it would be a box alarm plus foam trailer and we would call haz-mat.

    We got 3 people on our Engines.

    1) Smell of gasoline One engine with a crew of 4 to 6

    2) Smell of LPG- Propane Full response: 2 engines, squad and command unit with a total of 19 personnel. We have a trailer park in our township that is entirely propane instead of natural gas so we respond on these quite a bit.

    3) C0 Detector activated One engine and rescue (ambulance)with a total of 11 personnel. This is a code 2 (no lights and sirens) response unless a person is reporting ill effects.

    4) Gas spill Spill on land-One engine, special call for squad if more "oil dry" absorbant is needed. Spill in river- One engine & squad plus contact USCG for response with boom.

    A gas spill is the only one that we may call the neighboring city's Haz Mat unit in for but it would have to be a big spill such as a tanker.
