You'd mentioned OSHA earlier as the feds stepping in. ANY industrial accident is routinely investigated by OSHA. There will be no other 'federal investigation.'
Yes, you truly are unbeleivable.
The FEDERAL agency of OSHA hasn't even arrived on site because it's still deemed unsafe and you already know the conclusion of the affair. LOL

Google "whistleblower provisions"......oh sorry, you can't. You'll just have to guess.

"Unbeleivable." Unbelievable. Maybe you will learn how to spell next week in school.
I can spell, it's typing which is my hurdle. Oh well......

The folks who live in Tavares surely have a real life example of why this plant should not reopen in it's present location. Does the State of Florida not have development restrictions involving the proximity of hazardous material with populated areas? This plant is apparently only ten years old.

Normally I ignore typos, spelling, grammar etc, errors but since you made it a point to call me out on a post which was correct I couldn't resist.

I think it's funny for someone who makes as many errors and mistakes as you do to correct ANYONE.

Yes, it makes perfect sense Monday night at 11pm is peak time and half or more of the total work force was required to be there, filling up BBQ tanks for customers lined up down the road.
Tell me Rambler, are you really stupid, or do you just try to be annoying??? This is a PRODUCTION PLANT. People do not go there to get their tanks. The plant fills the damn things and sends them out to retailers. You can exchange tanks at most of the big box stores and some smaller ones. Why are simple processes so difficult for you to comprehend?!?!?

What a mess! How did such a large quantity of stored propane gas ever get approved at a site so close to a populated area?
Says the local fire chief - "They actually run a very safe operation."
We're not as idiotic as the Canadians and we don't need the government to tell us when to go to the bathroom. You should be very grateful for your socialist state, you're obviously incapable of doing anything without the government telling you when, how and what color! The Blue Rhino plant will be cleared up and go back into production at its current site. Everything will be just fine. And you can spend a year worrying about non-issues. If you had a real life, this kind of crap would not be so important to you.

My point was, Corey can't be sued for prosecuting Zimmerman.
I do accept the verdict, I just don't agree with it.
I also accepted the Casey Anthony verdict, with which I do not agree.
She drafted the indictment, therefore , has limited immunity from prosecution.
Ask yourself; Why didn't she put the case before a grand jury ?
Simply because a grand jury would indict with no evidence .

Accept the verdict and move on as you stated you would 19 months ago.

It's not for me to worry about, neither you as already said you don't live in Tavares. If the local folk want to reside close by and send their children to school only 400 yards from a highly explosive storage facility that only by luck and prompt action didn't level the entire town, that's their business.

But I do detect that you have a flagrant disregard for their safety. Is there a reason for that, considering you also clame Blue Rhino is merely a place you drive by. I mean really, obviously you know nothing about it, so let's allow the locals and officials to decide the future course of action, shall we?

And a correction - Blue Rhino does not qualifies as a 'production' facility as they neither manufacture the tanks nor produce the propane. Unless you see it as a producer of mini A-bombs.

"Blue Rhino are a distribution point for LP Gas, they receive it via large cylinder trucks and they put it in smaller tanks for commercial and domestic use."

OJ was celebrated by the black community for beating the charges.

Quite a contrast to the Zimmerman verdict where an innocent man was acquitted of bogus charges.

The OJ verdict was a clear case of jury nullification.

You're right about cooking. Food tasted better when no one was worried about fat content and carbs!:) I'm pretty used to the gas grill so I don't notice the difference anymore, but on the rare occasions when I go somewhere where they use charcoal, I remember why I liked it better.

Blue Rhino produces neither propane, nor manufactures storage tanks or BBQ canisters.

A distributor is a manufacturer or production plant....why is it a big deal to you that Blue Rhino in Tavares must be considered a manufacturing plant when it's clearly not?

The investigation into what occurred has only just begun.

If the explosion was simply ignited by a forklift, plus the cooling hoses designed to spray water malfunctioned, clearly the safety aspect will be thoroughly examined for the sake of employees and people living nearby.

I ask you once again -- why are so flippant in regard to people's lives? Haven't you noticed the current controversy which has been raised regarding the West Texas fertilizer plant explosion and lack of regulations governing the storage of explosive chemical compounds close to populated areas? This explosion is but another small example.

"According to Greenpeace, one in three Americans could fall victim to a similar poison gas disaster by virtue of living near upwards of 12,000 plants that store and use highly toxic substances.“A chemical disaster at just one of these facilities could kill or injure thousands of people with acute poisoning,” the group reports. Greenpeace has identified 483 U.S. facilities where 100,000 people or more would be at risk during a disaster. And one in five of those threatens areas with populations topping one million."

How about you give a brief presentation on Propane Production at your next huddle?

Propane

Propane is produced as a by-product of two other processes, natural gas processing and petroleum refining. The processing of natural gas involves removal of butane, propane, and large amounts of ethane from the raw gas, in order to prevent condensation of these volatiles in natural gas pipelines. Additionally, oil refineries produce some propane as a by-product of cracking petroleum into gasoline or heating oil. The supply of propane cannot easily be adjusted to meet increased demand, because of the by-product nature of propane production. About 90% of U.S. propane is domestically produced.[citation needed] The United States imports about 10% of the propane consumed each year, with about 70% of that coming from Canada via pipeline and rail. The remaining 30% of imported propane comes to the United States from other sources via ocean transport.
After it is produced, North American propane is stored in huge salt caverns. Examples of these are Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta; Mont Belvieu, Texas and Conway, Kansas. These salt caverns were hollowed out in the 1940s,[9] and they can store 80,000,000 barrels (13,000,000 m3) or more of propane. When the propane is needed, much of it is shipped by pipelines to other areas of the United States. Propane is also shipped by truck, ship, barge, and railway to many U.S. areas.[10]

"It was like a firing squad. Bullets were flying everywhere," he told the News Journal.

Deputies feared for their lives

But the deputies involved told a different story.

Meeks fired 12 shots and White fired three times, authorities said. They are now on paid administrative leave. Five of the bullets hit the White Town car, which was parked under a carport in a dark area of the property.
The deputies were in fear for their own safety, according to the sheriff.

"He came out of the car with more of a lunging motion coming out of the car, and the deputies were standing behind him and he had what appeared to be a metallic object in his hand," Sheriff David Morgan said.
