LPG Level 1 Course Request Form

 
The LPG Level 1 Mobile Operations training is a two-day course. The first day is classroom-based, where 14 modules will be reviewed that cover every facet of LPG emergency management, including: 
 
  • emergency response assistance plans (ERAPs) and regulations
  • the Emergency Response Guide 
  • LPG products and their characteristics
  • cylinders and tanks
  • LPG trucks and transport
  • rail transportation
  • water flow requirements 
  • gas detection 
  • boiling Liquid Expanding Vapour Explosions (B.L.E.V.E.).
Day two will consist of two parts. Part one will be a review of commonly encountered LPG emergencies as scenarios. These four scenarios require firefighters to work through the strategy, risk mitigation, planning, problem solving, decision-making and incident action plans and tactics necessary to safely manage the situation. Part two will be hands-on training. Four propane training prop trailers will be used that simulate situations encountered in the field. 
 
These will include:
 
  • Distribution system breaks (considerations, options and approach);
  • Motor vehicle fuel tank fires;
  • Building service meter flange fires; and
  • Cylinder or tank fires
Proper cooling techniques, safety valves, shut-offs, pressure relief valves and leak control and extinguishment techniques are reviewed and practiced throughout the remainder of the day including cooling, safe approaches, pressure relief valves (PRVs), shut off and egress.
