This past weekend the Kent Island Volunteer Fire Department hosted a training course on Propane Emergencies. The two day course was taught by instructors of HazMat IQ which is part of Federal Resources of Stevensville. The training was attended by members of KIVFD along with personnel from the Prince George's County Fire Dept. The class was a combination of classroom and hand on training with live propane releases. A tremendous thank you to Tri-Gas and Oil for their support of the this training program. Tri-Gas generously donated the propane for this training. The training opportunity was made possible through the Queen Anne's County Department of Emergency Services who secured the funding a Federal Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness Grant.
