    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.

The World is not on fire.
BRAVO. Very good observations. Thanks for writing this. Decisions/leadership based upon fear or lack of training is unacceptable. These things need to be said, to counteract the attitudes that are trying to influence future generations of firefighters.

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
I'm not sure how the Portsmouth, VA FD normally operates but that is an embarrassment. I am not understanding any part of why the hose team did not make entry while one other member broke out the window with an extension ladder to provide quick ventilation. From what is seen, and the conditions present, in…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
Actually it does not seem to raise the temperatures at the floor in most cases. Do you feel feel different after attack begins? Of course you do. Steam is produced when water hits the fire and you feel the humidity through your gear. This is going to happen regardless of whether the stream entered a…

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
Marques, As I have been following this debate for the past few weeks, and looking for the best way to respond, I could find no "correct" way to join the conversation without maybe coming off as narrow-minded. The response you have here says exactly what I believe is the best way to approach the SLICER/…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
Though hitting a fire from the outside lowers the temperature in the room, it raises it closer to the floor. I've been a firefighter for 14 years and work for an inner city department. You'd better be damn sure there are no victims in the structure anywhere near where those heated gasses are going to…
