Budd Lake Firefighters Train On Gas Fires

Posted on June 24, 2013

The fire department made a recent trip to the Warren County Fire Academy to learn and train on different types of gas fires. They started out with household gas meter fires with only a bought 10 lbs. of gas presser then went to underground vault fires with 30 lbs. then went on to an underground leak fire and finished up with industrial gas feed fires that had 60 plus lbs. The training lasted two hours and crews took turns working hose streams and the proper way to protect exposers.
