Most process facilities, either onshore or offshore, handle large quantities of highly flammable gases and liquids. In spite of the most careful precautions, there are times when large quantities of these materials are released. They may then find a source of ignition resulting in a major fire. Hence it is important that all process facilities are provided with firefighting equipment and services, and that the workers at those facilities know how to respond when the worst happens.
