Is it just me or Chinese videos always feel a bit awkward
im sure it is you
chinese firemen were discussing whether to wait for explosion or not.
@TEXAS HOLDEM123 oh it was in China, now I understand why they were risking so many lives to save 50 gallons of gas.
@Jman5048 yeah....and i'm surprised the USA isn't invading to try take it over
looks like some sort of training exercise to me. and what with the guy at the end runing through te spray? look he's there just for a laugh!
splash me splash me!
I told you guys to put down the slip n slide first.
Firefighters are some brave SOB's, man. It may not have done much, but I sure as hell wouldn't have gotten that close.
Chinese fire drill....actually they looked pretty organized.
@Celt lol why not?
Look at the lunatic running in front of the firehoses at 0:57
@SmirnoffVodka Guy was in need of a refreshment.
And he got it! By the form of a high powered hose to the face....
Looks like the truck's own diesel tanks that are blowing out fumes.
Truck's have huge diesel tanks and when they are half full and heated by fire diesel-fumes mix with the air in the empty space above the fuel making the thing as explosive as gasoline fumes.
The whole thing ignites blowing out the big fireball and burning off the available oxygen in the tank so the fire stops burning and more dieselfumes can collect and mix with air for the next ignition.
I was thinking either diesel tank or a tire but that was certainly not the contents. It was probably a tanker full of milk.
Training vid...nothing to see here.
it' simulates explosion from storage tanks of gas on many euro tanks that are on the side.
wow, that was really dumb. Whoever was in charge should be fired. 15 people in a dead zone of that thing, why? Just sit there and let it fucking blow up, no harm in that, what are they gonna try and recycle that 10% of fuel they may save or something. If that would have blown up all of those firemen you saw on the video would have died. Their gear they are wearing only protects against heat, not a shock wave from an explosion which is what would kill them in a situation as this.
These kind of videos make me squirm.
@Jman5048 I guess at this stage of training they get most of it wrong.
Damn, i so hoped that it would have blown off.
Appears to be a training exercise?
I could have swore I seen a streaker at the very end.
Chinese firefighters aren't so brave...
But I too wouldn't have the confidence in chinese gear and pressure-relief valves.
@Marbus I think almost any rolled over burning tanker containing flammable stuff is going to get me jumpy, no matter what gear I have.... but then again, maybe I could be trained out of that, but maybe not. First rule of life saving is to make sure you don't get your own ass taken out. I guess there are people who go over that line, so they get respect for that.
@CatEatDog I admit that I have no idea whatsoever about firefighting training and procedures. But - without revealing too much of my beautiful online anonymity - I work in a company which does a lot of transportation security related stuff. Coatings and valves for tanks like this are just a part of it and not my department but we hear a lot from them.
Anyway, the tank(ers) in Germany have to fulfill quite strict requirements to get a permission. In our testing, they withstand a full fire (not t More..his little campfire in the video) for dozens of minutes at least. Of course releasing vapor through the pressure valves if necessary. All this for giving the firefighters enough time to come and cool it down with their water hoses.
Vapor release through the valves is not really dangerous. An exploding tanker is. So they should cool it down asap.
But yes, maybe they are rookies on training and will learn it soon enough. Or, like I said, they fear the made in China tanks. Less..
@Marbus Awesome post. Thank you for the information. I had no idea of the engineering standards that have been reached. Great information. Thank you again!
Does this remind anyone else of a Godzilla movie?
Title should read:
Tanker rolls over and is about to bore you to death.
That was fart, not explosion...
Firefighter at the end got borde with the fire exercise and decided to take a shower
WTf why is this fire fighter training session featured
A better title would be: "Tanker doesn't explode. Don't bother watching."
next time dont run away....morons....
"Ok men. On the count of 3, run away."
WTF was that running across the screen at the end? Is this real?
