Humpday Hangout: Close Encounters with Carbon Monoxide

In this week’s Humpday Hangout, Bill Gustin, Mike Dugan, and the rest of the panel will address their experiences with carbon monoxide (CO). Whether as a result of faulty gas-burning devices or as a product of a structure fire, the presence of CO can prove fatal to firefighters on scene, as it can be found in dangerous concentrations at great distances from a structure fire’s area of origin. Is metering for CO part of your department’s secondary search? Have you experienced high levels of CO from fires partially extinguished by sprinklers? At what concentration will you allow occupants back in their building? Industrial fire expert Ed Collet joins the panel for this week’s discussion on a significant fireground hazard.
