This five-day course is designed to expand the knowledge and skills for emergency responders, tank farm operators, and bulk-storage and containers facility supervisors/managers when responding to and successfully mitigating large atmospheric storage-tank emergencies.  The course will combine classroom lecture and small group activities with field observation and hands-on skill practice, utilizing live-fire simulations of bulk-storage emergencies.  The course will conclude with a capstone live-fire field response to the largest atmospheric storage tank fire prop in North America.
