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.

On a hot summer afternoon, your bulk plant is in the process of off-loading 33,000 gallons of propane from a railroad tank car. As the unloading process continues, a thunderstorm begins to develop and move in from the southeast. The decision is made to stop off-loading the rail car until the storm passes. Before the pump is shut down, the rail car unloading rack is hit with a direct lightening strike and a fire breaks out.

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.
