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 evaluationIdentifying the problem and implementing the response planHazardous materials properties and effectsIdentifying and coordinating resourcesDecontamination proceduresThe Eight-Step Process©Personal protective equipment selectionProcedures for terminating the incidentThe 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 IncidentsProBoard Assessment Methodology Matrices for the Hazardous Materials Technician and Hazardous Materials Incident Commander levelsCorrelation 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 studiesPractical, step-by-step skill drillsImportant hazardous materials technician and safety tips
