Natural Gas and Propane Emergencies
Hosted by Bensenville FPD at Station 1 700 S. York Road Bensenville IL
October 17, 2019 8:30AM – -4:00PM
Natural gas or propane emergencies can happen inside a structure. They can result in odors or leaks in buildings, gas lines that have been compromised or even a catastrophic explosion with fire. Response to gas leaks can last from several minutes to several hours. Leaks inside of a structure pose a far greater risk than those outside. Responders must recognize the severity of the incident and be prepared to eliminate or control the hazards. The program will review the characteristics and behaviors of natural gas and propane and provide information on gas distribution systems, the unpredictability of gas leaks, the best practices for dealing with them.
