    i wont to know about hazmat and how to learning this kind of hazmat

  • Larry:

    If you’re not an emergency responder, there are several methods available for you to gain hazardous materials training. Some options include local community college continuing education departments, local businesses offering these training programs, state emergency management agencies (check the “training” tab and note emergency responders will get priority attendance) and your employer may offer some type of hazardous materials training. An additional method to gain some information about haz mat training at no cost to you is using the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s free online training courses; the web address to view offerings is http://training.fema.gov/is/crslist.asp?page=all Please note this training can provide a way to earn a living. There are many companies around the US cleaning up hazardous materials after accidents; there are several haz mat classes required by both OSHA and/or EPA for companies performing this type of clean-up work.

    Online radiation training courses are available at the FEMA site; additional opportunities may be found at your states emergency management agency website under the “training” section. If you are near a major interstate highway used by the US Department of Energy radioactive material shipping campaigns, courses near you may be found by contacting the DOE Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program contact for your region of the United States at http://www.em.doe.gov/TEPPPages/TEPPPOC.aspx Send the person listed in your region an email asking about training oppportunities in your state. DOE courses are offered free of charge.

  • Thank you to everyone responding to the call for registrations for this course. The course will run; the class is full. The next Department of Energy (DOE) Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program (TEPP) Radiation Specialist class will be held October 01-05, 2012 in Alburquerque, NM.

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
I found that firefighters do more calls than just structure fires, so with that I've established an acronym I use and teach others in my company. FIRE; First unit, Identify, Resources, Evaluate. It's simple and can't be used for any type of call. I know it won't ever catch like SLICERS but it works. First…

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
When I think of slicers or dicers I think of an acronym to remind you of interior attack tactics. S you should constantly be aware of your surroundings by maintaining your situational awareness while making an interior attack. L locating the fire is really apart of size up I.e. Seat of the fire and extension.…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
As you can most likely tell, I am in favor of the questioning. Thank you for your concern, but I am not offended. This arena does not lend itself kindly to the soft skinned. The purpose of this site is the discussion. Seeing how other departments operate and comparing that to how your department operates.…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
Anchor point, I to detest ideologues, there are no silver bullets, there is no one size tactic that fits all fires. I find it absolutely distressing that recently a friend of mine called those who disagree with some of the tactics being suggested as a result of some of the studies from UL and NIST…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
We are honored to have you comment on our little blog, Thank you. I do not like acronyms, a checklist it's more accurate. I was in the Army for 7 years, I am very familiar with acronyms. Much ado about nothing maybe, but yet, here we are. I recently watched a video that described the…
