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 forklift operator driving a propane powered forklift was stacking wooden pallets in the rear of a warehouse loading dock when she smelled smoke. Upon investigation, she discovered that two battery cables on the forklift had come loose and contacted the engine’s manifold starting a fire. The operator immediately shut down the forklift, turned off the battery switch, and told her co-worker to call the fire department.

Download the scenario to review the incident overview, the action plan and additional factors to consider. 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.
