The LEPC Local Emergency Preparedness Committee conducted their regularly scheduled meeting this afternoon at BG Products. Captain Troy Jellison, Master FF Derick Boggs, and Master FF Caleb Carson gave a demonstration to the group.
They brought a small chemical sample to test whether the product had flammable off-gas, whether it was flammable, whether it was miscible with water, and whether it was corrosive. After these tests the group was told what the chemical was – floor cleaner.
El Dorado FD responds to hazardous material calls throughout Butler County through a county/city agreement . If things get complicated the Regional team from Wichita can be called.
