Please allow me to invite you to the group called Unique HazMat Incidents. We are currently talking about some real interesting issues.

Nice looks like you guys did a great job. If I remember correctly there is a copper pin on the drivers side of the tank. This pin is an emergency pin that will shut down the valves. Did this truck have a pin ? I am trying to gather information regarding the pin working and not working. Great Job! Todd McKee

We use the same system seems to work good. Except when man power short, we have trouble getting off the truck to do training. I feel that as a fire instructor you need to be out there getting dirt with guys, and seeing what is going on at the fire and with firefighters. It seem that the 24 hour instructors are more respected and looked up to than the BC or 40 hour (political promotion system). Be safe
