Propane Gas Emergencies- 7.15.2008
On July 15, 2008 Chelsea hosted a class on propane gas at our sub-station. A representative from Star gas and Dave Walsh from Dutchess Community College discussed the differences between Natural Gas & Propane and the cylinders that it is shipped and stored in. The instructors also demonstrated how propane reacts when it is dispensed from unregulated and regulated valves. One demonstration showed how propane reacts when it when gas reacts when in a confined area and finds an ignition source and quickly erupts into a fireball. The Glenham Fire Dept. also participated.
