    Question Looking for info on combustible metals

    I am interested in teaching a class on combustible metals such as magnesium that we see a lot of in automobile fires. Primarily the manufacturing and distribution in our market place products and the hazardous precautions and tactics necessary to extinguish combustible metal fires. Dose anyone have a canned training program already developed or can you offer any advice as how to proceed? Thanks,

    Chief,
    I don't have a lot but some of these may help you, The car fire ppt has a section in it on the metals.
