*About the Danger Zone – Pressurized natural gas is flammable and highly combustible. A high pressure natural gas pipeline failure can result in severe injuries, property damage and loss of life. Injuries can be caused by the blast itself, as well as fire and intensive heat from a natural gas explosion. Specific types of injuries include:
- Blast wave injuries caused by high pressure shock wave from explosion. Examples include inner ear damage, eye rupture, lung or abdominal perforation
- Flying debris injuries – “shrapnel like injuries” caused by flying debris penetrating the skin
- Impact injuries including fractures, concussions and other blunt force trauma injuries
- Minor, disfiguring or deadly burns caused by fire or intense heat radiating from the pipeline explosion.
