Thanks for inviting me Todd. I like it. As far as the manure storage tank, it would have to be the facility owner that would be willing to post what it is. Is it Hydrogen Sulfide or Methane that is causing the suffocation? It would be at least prudent to post an NFPA 704 placard, identifying the hazards, rather than the product.

By accident I am just having a discussion on placards / warning signs, as last week 3 people fell unconscious in a manure tank and one of them died. A question out of the field was, why not placard manure tanks. In our country, manure tanks are not seen as dangerous goods with regard to road transport, so there is no obligation to put an official hazmat placard on.
I think however that it would be wise to put a warning sign on the man h*** cover - any suggestions / existing warning signs?

Welcome to the world's greatest training site. This is where the serious trainers come to train & learn from each other. Please allow me to invite you to the group called "HAZMAT PLACARDS TO SUCCESS". This group is for the firefighter, the EMA officer, and the HazMat Technician. I would love to hear what you have to say. This is a great time to join the group as our main focus is currently the first stages of the HazMat Incident.

Your friend,
Todd McKee
