Marathon puts many of their employees thru a Fire Extinquisher use training school.
They also extend this to area Fire Departments in a more advanced form, to offer training in petroleum realated fires.

In the 1940's and 50's many terminals maintained their own fire truck because they were so far from the nearest Fire Dept.
