Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident
Tuesday, April 25
Given the risks of hazmat emergency response operations, the overwhelming majority of responder injuries and deaths at hazmat incidents occur prior to the arrival of Hazmat Response Teams. The ability of the incident commander to critically analyze the problem and effectively apply a risk-based response methodology provides the foundation for a safe response. Using the Eight-Step Process as the framework, this workshop focuss on the tactical management of hazmat and special operations incidents. The target audience includes both company and command officers as well as hazmat officers and hazmat safety officers.
