Video Aims To Prevent Fire Tanker Rollovers

Date: 2013-06-28
Share |

The National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) has developed a new version of their Cargo Tank Rollover Prevention Video to help target the fire service. The original intention of the video was to target cargo and commercial tankers “to help educate water tanker drivers on the special characteristics of tank truck vehicles and the actions they can take to avoid rollovers.”

Let's help eliminate deaths and injuries to emergency responders from fire department tanker/tender rollover crashes. Please share this video with fire departments in your area or membership. The video contains a special introduction for fire fighters to the Cargo Tank Rollover Prevention Video developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation in cooperation with NTTC. Single copies for reproducing the video are available at no cost for reproduction and sharing with a larger audience. 

Developed with the U.S. Department of Transportation, the lessons translate easily to fire department water tankers. Topics covered are safe driving techniques, understanding how liquids move while operating the vehicle, how different vehicles affect travel, and highway factors.

A National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) report published in 2001 states that 62 people were killed in tanker rollovers between 1977 and 1999 (PDF, 102.1Kb). In fact, deaths from tanker rollovers top the list in apparatus accident fatalities. The report did not discuss injuries from tanker rollovers.

The 20-minute online video is ideal for training, and DVDs may be requested.  The video is available for download here in F4V (Flash) format.  NTTC encourages agencies to create and distribute DVDs using this download.
