SOMERSET – First responders and industry experts learned how to properly handle a propane emergency Saturday.
Sponsored by a Pennsylvania Propane Association grant, the class included demonstrations from Michael Moore, a fire service and cargo tank emergency response trainer.
Moore taught those who attended how to identify different kinds of fires, and how to approach them in the event of an accident involving propane.
“We’re learning about how to deal with motor carrier transport propane tanks. If a rollover would occur, or any sort of emergency that deals with them, we’re learning how to mitigate it properly,” training officer Joel Landis said.
