Propane - Bobtail Live Fire Mobile Training Unit

A fire involving a propane bobtail delivery truck is a challenging experience for the fire service, whether the incident is at a delivery or filling site or at an incident on the highway.

State Fire Rescue Training working with propane organizations have developed two Propane Bobtail Live Fire Mobile Training Units.

Instructors using these units provide education for responders in fire control and rescue of drivers and others involved in an incident. This is an intense hands-on live fire experience.

During classroom sessions responders and propane industry workers learn about the properties of flammable liquids and gases, operations of propane bobtail trucks, emergency response actions including fire control/suppression and rescue of drivers and others involved in incidents.

To participate in this training contact your SFRT Area Coordinator or watch for these classes at regional and state fire schools.
