Fire Chief #Petition: First Responders petition to replace “C”-Kit w/ secondary containment. #Haz-Mat


TOXIC TRAIN SAFETY
FIRST RESPONDER
WARNING
Dangerous Chlorine tank car
Dangerous Chlorine tank car
Use of The Chlorine Institute “C”-Kit may cause the catastrophic failure of a chlorine tank car.
The Chlorine Institute instruction manual fails to warn first responders that it is imperative to check the pressure of the car prior to applying the “C”-Kit device to the pressure relief valve.
The “C”-Kit is not equipped with a pressure testing device and fails to explain the extreme dangers inherent to capping off and disabling a pressure relief valve.
ALERT OTHERS
TO THIS EXTREME HEALTH AND SAFETY HAZARD
Support first responders petition
to replace “C”-Kit with secondary containment.

Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
