GEMA teaches firefighters about ethanol
Mon, 21 Sep 2009 21:23:20 GMT —
The Georgia Emergency Management Agency holds a hazardous materials training course today for local firefighters involving ethanol.
Authorities say Albany is a hub for transporting the product that is manufactured in neighboring counties. On a regular basis, by railway or truck, ethanol is shipped all over Southwest Georgia which makes the potential for a spill higher.
Fire crews say water won't work on spills of this nature and specialized foam is used in its place.
