As you all know fire departments across the country vary widely in size and resources, but every department understands the value of reaching the community with fire safety information. What better way to reach large numbers of residents than through newspapers, radio programs, and local television news?

QUICK RESPONSE – a free program of the United States Fire Administration - invites all fire service personnel to join the QUICK RESPONSE Media Corps (QMRC). The USFA will provide QRMC members with periodic e-mail bulletins with tips on media outreach and other support to firefighters interested in engaging local media, especially after residential fire deaths occur. QRMC members are also the first to know about important updates from USFA’s public education campaigns.

To join USFA's free QUICK RESPONSE Media Corps, please fill join online at:


Please copy this message into an e-mail and forward to your colleagues and neighboring fire departments!

It can not be burried below grade level, I do believe it can be below the upper grade level but just not below the grade, this almost looks like a set-up cause I can not believe that a contractor would do something this dumb, but then again.

Static electricity common with plastic gas cans and the plastic interior trim of the mini-van could cause an explosion during the fueling process.

Does this guy not care about the fumes that will be lingering after he is done pumping gas into an illegal container, he closes the door and maybe kaboom if not then maybe when the key is turned on if he did shut off his vehicle. What about static electricity. What a J---

WOW! Thanks to Patrick Stepler for this photo taken in Virginia. Yes, this man is pumping gasoline into an unapproved container. Are there any code violations? Maybe State laws?

Good eye Bob. The rusted tank, is now a single wall tank instead of a double wall tank. This was a worse case scenario. This was only a small snapshot of what was found.

Exit sign is in-proper, the danger sign falling off the wall, unsecured drums and they too are probly not the right ones for storage and they are unmarked, no fan or exhaust system that I can see, and the big rusty tank I believe should be changed, I do see sometype of fan on the floor in all that liquid on the floor. In my eyes it needs to be shut down and cleaned and brough up to code. Never came across this before, but then again I worked on an air base and this if we had it would never have gotten this far.
