Permit-Required Confined Space Incident and Response

A flash fire erupts in a permit-required confined space -- a hydro-electric plant tunnel. Painters are trapped by fire and smoke from the burning solvent and coatings.

Local FD responders are not equipped or trained to enter the space and those who are, are an hour away.

Facility, contractor, inspector or responder -- this CSB video should help the way you think about how to approach this kind of work.
