    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.

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
Anthony, Thank you for your response. I hope I didn't come off as saying that "I am the only opinion that matters in this paper." I agree with you 100% that there is no "Set" way to do anything, and that we need to keep our minds open to different techniques and thinking outside of…

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
Ben, Thanks a lot for your comment! You're definitely right that there needs to be hoseline protection given to the guys working above the fire; and that a TIC should be utilized when attempting VES techniques. Every little thing we can do and engineer to make an already dangerous maneuver safer is a must! Thanks…

While VSP was written as an EFO paper, the paper it is not end all be all on this topic. In a presentation Marsars did last year, he himself said it wasn't 100%. Even gave an example of a fire in his home local where a person lived, that would of met unlikely survivability profiling.…

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
I agree, with two additional points. VIES of the tenable 2nd story windows should include the following - 1. A heavy Transitional attack in the 1st floor windows below the fire to protect the truckies' access, the ladders, and egress for truckies and (potential) victims. 2. Truckies take a thermal imaging camera and size up…
