Homeland Security and Emergency Services

Crowd Manager Training

The High Hazard Train Fires course will prepare students to respond to incidents involving High Hazard Flammable Trains (HHFT), which transport a single ignitable liquid product such as crude oil or ethanol. Topics covered will include strategic (offensive vs. defensive) and tactical decision making, tank car recognition, water supply, Class B foam operations and the effective use of cooling streams. As the majority of the course will consist of outside skills evolutions, some including live fire, it is a physically demanding course and students must be prepared to work in the various environmental conditions appropriate for the season in which the course is being conducted.
