The rise of people switching to natural gas in their homes and businesses has corresponded to an increase in natural gas emergencies. For too long, first responders have treated natural gas incidents as regular calls, but they are anything but that. This webinar, presented by Brian Focht, will review case studies to highlight what can go wrong on gas responses, best practices to protect responders, tools that will set you up for success, and how to develop a response plan that will get your personnel home at the end of the run. Additional training opportunities will also be highlighted.
This webinar is sponsored by FireCraft® Safety Products, a manufacturer of structural, extrication, and work gloves, and a master distributor of Sensit gas detectors for the fire industry. FireCraft sells through a worldwide dealer network, providing products to enhance the safety of firefighters and other first responders.
