Advanced Bulk Storage Response is a hands-on course
designed to provide emergency responders with the skills and knowledge to
mitigate a flammable liquid fire involving bulk storage. 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.
