BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - The Broken Arrow Fire Department is working on what to do in a worst-case scenario during a major propane or gas fire.
Cadets like Alan Stroop run straight into it.
"It's just an adrenaline rush when you are doing this, kind of hits excitement, it's a passion and love, it's a fun job," said Stroop.
FOX23 found out this is part of the training program, focusing on flammable liquids and gas.
"They are going to attack a propane cylinder. It will be off gas and emitting a lot of fire," said Major Bryan Myrick.
Myrick told FOX23 in Oklahoma this training is incredibly important for a number of reasons.
"The propane tank that you see tonight, several thousand homes within the community across the United States are heated by the propane," said Myrick.
Tractor-trailers or railroad cars also carry propane, and fire is a dangerous concern.
Family members sat in support as the cadets went through the training.
"He's spent six years chasing his dream of becoming a firefighter," said Nicki Brice, wife of a cadet.
Brice said the training is important to the cadets out here and to the families behind them.
