Investigating Natural Gas Systems

Now Available on CFITrainer.Net

A fire investigator should have a basic understanding of the potential role of natural gas as a fuel source, an ignition source, and a factor in fire spread. The fire investigator should also know the tests that may be required as part of the fire investigation when natural gas piping or equipment is involved.

This module presents the role natural gas can play in fire ignition, fuel load, and spread; the elements of investigating a fire in a residence where natural gas is present; and the potential role the gas utility or the municipality can play an investigation.

The module also discusses the documentation of the natural gas system and the types of tests that may be required as part of the fire investigation when natural gas piping or equipment is involved.
