Gas, fire and other hazards are found throughout the production and use of automobiles, from the plants where components are manufactured and cars are assembled to tunnels and parking garages where vehicle exhaust collects. While the type of gas hazard varies depending upon the application, the end result must be the same—the safety of people and infrastructure.
