Description Last Updated
Downloadable Propane Emergencies Scenarios you can view on your tablet, smartphone or computer. The HTML5 converted scenarios were originally created for the Propane Emergencies textbook to describe appropriate emergency response for 20 different potential propane emergencies ranging from residential propane leaks and fires to major transportation- and storage-related incidents.

This scenario includes a propane leak has occurred under the dome cover of a 1,000 gallon ASME stationary aboveground tank. The propane gas is drifting slowly away from the tank and is settling in the area between the tank and the wall of a factory, 25 feet away from the tank. An adjacent 1,000 gallon storage tank is next to the leaking tank but is not involved. A church, grocery store and gasoline station are across the street. The 911 caller informed the emergency responders that they saw children playing around with the tank just before the leak occurred. The incident has occurred in the early morning, and the temperature is 48ºF. The weather forecast calls for steadily increasing temperatures to 70ºF by 3:00 pm.

The scenarios are not intended to establish Standard Operating Procedures for any individual emergency response organization. Each organization should develop its own SOPs based on local rules, regulations, policies, and available resources.
