  • Propane Training

    GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Heavy demand is expected throughout
    the state for a 500-gallon propane simulator being used to train
    firefighters in central Nebraska.
    The Nebraska Propane Gas Association donated the simulator last
    week to the State Fire Marshal Division. The tank's remote
    electronic controls will allow trainers to simulate a variety of
    fire scenarios, giving those in training the opportunity to learn
    various firefighting procedures.
    Joe Hanson, the State Fire Marshal Training Division manager,
    doesn't expect the simulator to spend much time in Grand Island.
    He said the simulator will be transported all over the state for
    People from each of the division's six regions in Nebraska came
    to Grand Island to be trained how to use the simulator, he said,
    adding that several members of the Grand Island Fire Department are
    also part-time trainers for the State Fire Marshal Training
    Michelle Swertzic, executive director for the Nebraska Propane
    Gas Association, said her organization donated the simulator to
    provide Nebraska's fire departments with the knowledge and skills
    to respond to propane-related incidents.
    There's another good reason to use the simulator, Hanson said.
    Propane is a clean-burning fuel, which means that it is safe for
    the environment when used during training exercises.
    Hanson said his division uses propane to simulate car fires,
    Christmas tree fires and in pans to simulate surface fires.
    The tank donated Friday will allow training sessions to simulate
    other conditions that firefighters may face, he added.
    "We have 500-plus fire departments in Nebraska," said Hanson,
    predicting heavy demand for the simulator.
    The best way to schedule a training session will be through
    mutual aid associations, which gather several departments
    simultaneously for training, he said.
