For courses in Hazardous Materials.

Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations is designed for firefighters, law enforcement, emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, and industry employees that may be faced with hazardous materials emergencies. This text closely adheres to the 2008 NFPA 472 competencies and is organized to follow the logical progression of a hazardous materials response. Providing technical information that can be used for initial training and periodic recurrent training, this book must be complemented with hands-on activities designed to reinforce key response concepts. The MyFireKit available to instructors online has suggested hands-on activities and exercises for each chapter.
