"Thanks to modern fire codes, its [sic] unlikely one will find wooden roofs on bulk tanks in today's petroleum industry. The steel tank in the illustration includes an aluminum geodesic dome designed to keep rainwater from accumulating on the tank's floating roof, as well as reduce the amount of product vapor lost due to atmospheric conditions. Do you have a bulk plant or refinery in your first response district? If so, honor the fallen by taking some time this week to conduct a familiarity visit or inspection so that this tragedy is not repeated."
