Issue 2. While attending the Thurmont Volunteers firemanís carnival Jul. 2010. A Major Safety hazard was left unnoticed.
There was a large cylinder pressure tank of heilium(2000lbs to 2800lbs of pressure) sitting 5-10 feet into a main walkway un- chained

endangered 1,000ís of people at the event.
When mentioned that the tank was supposed to be properly secured in a safe
manner, the candidate had a Benign response. I asked if there was any one around familiar with safety, and there was a retired
police officer next table over. Q -Isnít there no safety checks of the premise for the carnival? The candidate said
that the safety officer of the fire department carnival grounds had just been through 1 hour before.
This candidate had no real concern about the safety issue of the (Tank Bombs), until I was insistent. the tank was to be held securely and
then fastened properly. And until I get the heck out of the carnival grounds. I donít want to be involved in the possible accident!
The lack of knowledge about hazardous containers suggest to me that the person either never took any classes on safety, or slept through
them. OSHA what.
This candidate puts safety FIRST ? ? ? ? ?
