Back-to-basics hazmat response (eBook)
How to identify the hazard, coordinate response and mitigate hazmat incidents
Sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific
Hazmat incidents are some of the most dangerous calls facing firefighters. The low-frequency nature of these incidents can lull responders into a sense of complacency – a highly problematic approach given the prevalence of hazardous materials in every jurisdiction.
Any hazmat call requires a measured, deliberate and intensive approach. Successful resolution of a hazmat incident involves the right equipment – and the education and training to use it effectively.
Firefighters of all ranks must develop a risk-focused mindset, asking critical questions about each incident to identify the potential hazards.
