Presentation Title: How to deal with a fire once it’s Started: Lessons Learned from Multiple Facility Fires over Eight Years

Presentation Description: Over its 13 year history Dirt Hugger has had our fair share of fires. We have seen the classic: stockpiles, overs piles, active piles, but also equipment burn downs and wildfires that blew into the site. Learn from eight year site manager Andrew Voodrehow to deal with the fires once they’ve started. This includes interfacing with the fire department, managing your team’s response, and sleeping on site for fire watch. Compost fires aren’t a quick fix and require a sustained effort and strategy to quell.
