Boilovers: A FF Nightmare
Produced as part of Fire & Emergency Training Network's™ "American Heat" series, this training video contains information critical to firefighters about the dangers of crude oil storage tank boilovers. Technical advisor David White, publisher of Industrial Fire World, conducts a live fire demonstration showing the ferocity of boilovers and how thermal imaging technology can be used to determine if a boilover situation exists. This video includes detailed case histories of boilover incidents in Sherwood, ND, and Addington, OK, that resulted in firefighter fatalities. It also includes interviews with flammable liquid fire fighting expert Dwight Williams and other firefighters attending the 7th annual Les Williams Foam Technology Workshop held in May 2000. Live fire demonstrations of the latest extinguishing technology bring firefighters up to speed on current developments.
