Ethanol Awareness Online : 3 Hours
The IFSI Ethanol Awareness Online course is designed to give you a basic understanding of the emerging ethanol industry. While you may not have an ethanol plant in your jurisdiction, ethanol (E-95 and E-85) is becoming the number one hazardous material being transported today. Chances are you have volumes of ethanol moving through your community on any given day. Fire departments with ethanol plants in neighboring communities may be called to assist in ethanol plant emergencies. Ethanol has significantly different characteristics than petroleum based motor fuels. You must prepare to handle ethanol type incidents. Finally, this course provides a foundation to prepare you to take future ethanol courses.
The Awareness course covers topics relating to E-85 such as chemical and physical properties, terminology, production, transportation, distribution, fire and health hazards, spills and the ramifications, sources of additional information and fire fighting considerations and procedures.
