MegaFume reviewed with the San Marcos Fire Department tactical procedures for responding to fumigation incidents.

Last month, MegaFume reviewed with the San Marcos Fire Department tactical procedures for responding to fumigation incidents. Bill Frederick, fire captain/paramedic for the San Marcos Fire Department, asked MegaFume to participate. MegaFume set up a mock fumigation and reviewed many different scenarios that might help save lives. MegaFume licensee Gabriel Gonzales was the company’s point man at this site.
Frederick sent the following thank you note to MegaFume’s Dave Wadleigh:
Dave,
Your guys were awesome today! They made the drill very realistic and all of our firefighters learned a ton of new information. Their comfort level on this type of incident is greater than ever before. Tons of questions were answered by Gabe and his crew. They went over all the dangers of Sulfuryl Fluoride and Chloropicrin. Additionally, they covered several different scenarios that we would deal with on fumigation emergencies.   My Fire Chief was very appreciative of your support and he wanted me to pass the word, "thank you".
 The information from this drill will be used to train other firefighters in our department and other surrounding fire departments. Thanks again and maybe someday, this information could save somebody's life.
