CO2 Emergency Response

Instructor: Chris Pfaff

Time: 3:00pm - 5:00pm

Location: Hilton Garden Inn Conference Center


This discussion will go over Carbon Dioxide in a total aspect. We will begin with the physical properties of this NON-cryogenic liquified gas. We will discuss the difficulties with identification via containers and how previous knowledge may have to be revised with this product. We will then discuss what the fire code has done to address this hazard and how this can assist first responders that may need the tools on their rig to quantify the hazard. We will close out with a discussion on how to approach and address a CO2 emergency for agencies of any size.

Presentation Objectives
Learn the physical and chemical properties of Carbon Dioxide. Identify containers that may be found that will contain Carbon Dioxide. Identify options on how to respond to CO2 emergencies safely and even use CO2 for effective response.
