New Online Hazmat Training Courses Available!
In the face of public safety, firefighters, with some regularity, will encounter hazardous materials and hazards when responding to calls. To protect all involved, firefighters must understand the operations of hazardous materials incidents and be prepared to respond appropriately to minimize hazards.
The Fire Academy is excited to announce the addition of our new Hazmat training courses to our online library of fire courses! This series of online hazmat training courses meets and exceeds NFPA standard 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/ Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents, as well as OSHA standards.
The hazmat series will cover:
- properties of chemicals
- detection, monitoring, and sampling
- victim rescue and recovery
- incidents involving terrorism, WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents), and illicit laboratories
- gross, emergency, mass, and technical decontamination
- personal protective equipment
and much more!
