Members of the El Dorado, Hondo, Galisteo, and Glorieta Volunteer Fire Departments participated in a "Propane Tree" training exercise at the El Dorado Station 1 on 23 March 2011. A tree-looking device was used to simulate a propane tank fire, complete with an actual propane fire with flames reaching 30 feet into the sky.  The objective of the training was to practice the skills needed to safely approach such a fire and close off the tank’s valve.
