This class we will take a closer look at responding to RR high pressure commodity emergencies to include Anhydrous Ammonia, Propane and Chlorine. We will further explore high pressure tank car valves and tank car construction. Students will also learn how to apply the Mid-land capping kit and Chlorine C-Kit. CP and BNSF have developed a new innovative hands on exercise that will allow first responders to better understand the challenges they will face when responding to RR high pressure rail emergencies. Work gloves and SCBA’s are required for this class. This class will be presented by Paul Hester, Hazardous Materials Emergency Manager for the BNSF Railway and ND area and Ed Dankbar, CP Rail.
