Plan to Prevent Fires & Explosions

NGFA's Jim Seibert discusses how to prevent grain dryer fires and dust explosions by having an emergency plan in place.

The varied structures, layouts and commodities of grain handling facilities require that each facility create a unique emergency fire containment plan. One thing all emergency plans should have in common is a pre-established relationship with first responders.

Whether a fire emergency allows for an orderly facility shutdown or requires a “cut-and-run” evacuation, maintaining control is possible.

Watch this webinar will help you establish a plan to avoid confusion and mistakes that lead to injury and property loss, as well as explain how interacting with emergency responders BEFORE an emergency is crucial.
