  • Chlorinated Water

    I wasnt sure where to post this.
    Random question.

    If a department drafts from a pool and then uses that on a fire. Will the chemicals in the water create any adverse effects such as vapors?

    My one instructor said nothing happens because our drinking water has chemicals too but I pointed out that it is much stronger in pools.


    Any thoughts?

      The EPA/envirowackos will require a environmental impact statement. Fire will be out (for 2 years) by the time you're done.

      Perhaps hazardous biproducts of combustion signifiancant outweigh any other considerations? See also no fires allowed start until the EPA approves. There might be some nasty asbestos within 10miles that will destroy life as we know it.

        There shouldn't be any problems. Think of it this way, it the chemicals in the pool don't affect our skin when we swim in the pools, how much of impact could it really have when applied to a burning building?

            There will be some vapor from the chemicals as the water evaporates, but not anything to be worried about.

                What about the fluoride in the water that comes out of hydrants?

                Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

                "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


                Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

                          The flouride in the water will cause -MESSAGE REDACTED-.

                            Never mind the rivers, we've got some ponds whose water will almost leave the fire scene worse than the fire itself...
                            Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.
