HAZMAT Demonstration

BG ProductsThe 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.
