A Complete Training Solution for Hazardous Materials Technicians and Incident Commanders! In 1982, the authors Mike Hildebrand and Greg Noll, along with Jimmy Yvorra, first introduced the concept of the Eight-Step Process© for managing hazardous materials incidents when their highly regarded manual, Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident was published. Now in its Fourth Edition, this text is widely used by fire fighters, hazmat teams, bomb squads, industrial emergency response teams, and other emergency responders who may manage unplanned hazardous materials incidents. As a result of changing government regulations and consensus standards, as well as the need for terrorism response training, Mr. Noll and Mr. Hildebrand have modified and refined their process of managing hazmat incidents and added enhanced content, tips, case studies, and detailed charts and tables. The Fourth Edition contains comprehensive content covering: • Hazard assessment and risk evaluation • Identifying the problem and implementing the response plan • Hazardous materials properties and effects • Identifying and coordinating resources • Decontamination procedures • The Eight-Step Process© • Personal protective equipment selection • Procedures for terminating the incident The Fourth Edition’s dynamic features include: • Knowledge and Skills Objectives correlated to the 2013 Edition of NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents • ProBoard Assessment Methodology Matrices for the Hazardous Materials Technician and Hazardous Materials Incident Commander levels • Correlation matrix to the National Fire Academy’s Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Bachelor’s (Non- Core) Managerial Issues in Hazardous Materials Course Objectives • Realistic, detailed case studies • Practical, step-by-step skill drills • Important hazardous materials technician and safety tips

First responders who arrive on scene of a hazardous materials incident may be assigned to an engine, ladder truck, rescue, or ambulance with very little sophisticated HAZMAT equipment. Despite these limitations, their actions during the initial response will often set the stage for the success or failure of the entire event. Many incidents start out as minor “routine” events that suddenly escalate when something goes terribly wrong. Perhaps first responders did not anticipate the involvement of hazardous materials in a response to a rear-end collision involving two passenger vehicles, an EMS call at a residence for difficulty breathing, or a trash fire. That is until it was too late! First responders, despite their best intentions, can quickly become part of any hazardous materials problem. The results can be first responders who are killed or seriously injured, or those who suffer devastating illnesses years after exposure to a hazardous material. Even if you have hours of training on hazardous materials response, this book will provide every reader with… • Practical advice based on the real-life experiences of first responders • A one-stop source on topics such as atmospheric monitors and class B foam • Steps to managing “routine” incidents to prevent them from becoming disasters • Limitations of federal hazardous materials regulations you need to know • Real-world examples of first responders who won (or lost) the battle with hazardous materials First responders who arrive on scene of a hazardous materials incident may be assigned to an engine, ladder truck, rescue, or ambulance with very little sophisticated HAZMAT equipment.
