CSB Safety Video: Half an Hour to Tragedy - Little Giant Explosion - Ghent, WV

We have previously shared this video. It is important enough to feature it again.

Mistakes were made, and they cost human lives. We offer this video, not to lay blame, but to widen the sharing of the expensive lessons learned.

It is with hindsight and an observer's perspective that we can quickly see how things went wrong, so quickly. If you were dispatched to the scene of an, as yet, undetonated fuel-air bomb, how would you deploy?
