Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I am reaching out for a little assistance from our Emergency Services Sector - Hazmat Partners.

I am organizing an exercise with a scenario based on catastrophic rupture of a 90ton railcar of chlorine.
The exercise is scheduled for the later part of September.

What I am looking for is a historical example of a 90T railcar being punctured by an object.
Does anyone have a case history of something like that?

Your assistance and feedback is greatly appreciated.
Please pass this on to anyone who may be able to help.

Your Friend,

Todd McKee
