Fires often cause explosions in vessels, particularly those containing liquids common in Process plants. Fire fighting in the petrochemical, pharmaceutical and chemical process industries may be particularly complex, where, potentially every fire is a Hazmat incident. Large quantities of toxic fumes are frequently involved and may lead Company Emergency Response Team (CERT) members to undertake rash actions which constitute hazards to personnel.

This is also a WSQ module accreditated by WDA.
