The Rise of Hash Oil Extraction Explosions

With the current upward trend of Hash Oil explosions in Colorado, Sgt. Pat Long from Thornton Police Department found it necessary to develop an awareness training for first responders on this topic. Teaming up with Rocky Mountain HIDTA he designed a presentation with the safety of first responders being the priority. The presentation discusses the manufacturing process, explosion hazards for first responders and tips associated with investigating these incidents. 

Sgt. Long has offered to make his presentation available to all first responders in hopes of increasing the awareness of these incidents. By clicking on the link below, you can access Sgt. Long's Hash Oil Extraction Explosions presentation. We have added a few of the video links utilized in the presentation below. Depending on the speed of your internet, it may take a few minutes to download.

We ask that if this presentation is utilized for training that the instructor maintains credit for his work.
