Publish a safety communication that will inform fire service and emergency planning organizations in the state about the confined space safety lessons learned from the Cabin Creek incident including
a. The need to train and certify emergency response personnel who perform technical, including confined space, rescue.
b. The importance of a written confined space rescue plan for each designated permit space that includes
i. Methods of rescue and determination of whether a rescue team is required to standby outside the space.
ii. Rescue equipment requirements and plan of action.
c. The importance of treating confined spaces with the potential for flammable atmospheres above 10 percent of the LEL as a hazard immediately dangerous to life or health that requires rescuers to be stationed directly outside the permit space and available for immediate rescue with appropriate fire-extinguishing and rescue equipment.
d. The need for confined space rescue procedures to instruct emergency responders to not enter or occupy a confined space containing a flammable atmosphere 10 percent of the LEL or greater. Personal protective equipment (PPE) will not protect rescuers from an explosion in a confined space.
