The 4th edition of Hazardous Materials for First Responders is written for emergency first responders who are mandated by law and/or called upon by necessity to prepare for and respond to hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction (WMD) incidents. It serves as a primary text for personnel seeking to meet the requirements of NFPA® 472, Standard for Professional Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents (2008 edition) for Awareness-Level, Operations-Level, and Mission-Specific competencies. The purpose of this book is to provide first responders with the information they need to take appropriate initial actions at WMD incidents and hazardous materials spills or releases. Its scope is limited to giving detailed information about initial operations. Learning objectives are provided at the beginning of each chapter to assist the reader in focusing on the appropriate topic and knowledge and review questions are located at the end of each chapter. Skill sheets are provided at the end of many chapters to provide step-by-step instructions on how to perform crucial skills and activities. The book is divided into three parts designed to meet the competencies of NFPA® 472. The first three chapters address Awareness-Level competencies. The next four chapters address Operations core competencies. The last seven chapters address Mission-Specific competencies.

If you came upon an overturned truck on the highway that was leaking, would you be able to identify if it was hazardous and know what steps to take? Does the identification number 60 indicate a toxic substance or a flammable solid, in the molten state at an elevated temperature? Does the identification number 1035 indicate ethane or butane? What is the difference between natural gas transmission pipelines and natural gas distribution pipelines? Questions like these and more are answered in the 2016 update of the Emergency Response Guidebook.

The third edition of a bestseller, Hazardous Materials Chemistry for Emergency Responders continues to provide the fundamentals of "street chemistry" required by emergency response personnel. Emergency response and hazmat expert Robert Burke takes the basics of chemistry appropriate for response personnel and puts it into understandable terms. The author has retained the style and format that made the previous editions so popular while updating the information to keep the book relevant. See What’s in the Third Edition: Expanded section on Ethanol and its hazards to responders Update of NFPA 472 Chemistry requirements Revised section on "hazmat elements" with more hazards and response issues Includes a focus on the importance of the "hazmat elements" of chemical families New incident examples New photographs and graphics The chapters are organized by the nine U.S. Department of Transportation's hazard classes. Almost every hazardous material presents more than one hazard; the DOT’s placarding and labeling system only identifies the most severe hazards. Therefore, the book provides additional information about hidden hazards for each hazard class. It discusses individual chemicals, their hazards and their physical and chemical characteristics, both as distinct chemicals and within chemical families. The book offers a concise presentation of the topics of most importance to emergency responders on a day-to-day basis. It provides the basic chemistry a responder needs to understand chemical terminology and communicate with others about the chemicals involved in hazardous materials incidents.

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 (hazmat) incidents when their highly regarded manual, Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident was published. Now in its revised 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 Revised 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 Revised Fourth Edition’s dynamic features include: • NFPA 1072 and 472 Correlation Guide 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 (C0274) • Realistic, detailed case studies • Practical, step-by-step skill drills • Important hazardous materials technician and safety tips Also available to support Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident, Fourth Edition: • Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident, Fourth Edition Field Operations Guide • Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident, Fourth Edition Student Workbook • Navigate TestPrep: Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident • Hazardous Materials: Awareness and Operations, Third Editio

The handbook provides ready information on the fire and chemical reactivity of commonly used chemicals. Its purpose is to provide basic information important to the safe handling of chemicals and to help provide guidance in responding to a hazardous materials incident, in particular, incidents involving reactive chemicals and materials posing fire and explosion hazards. The volume has been written for chemical handling specialists, first responders to hazardous materials incidents, and firefighters. The basic definition used for a hazard materials incident is any situation that may potentially lead to catastrophic fire or explosion, and or human exposed to a toxic chemical. This situation may result from a spill of a hazardous material, a leak from a storage vessel or shipping container, or the mixing of incompatible chemicals whereby a chemical reaction could occur resulting in the release of energy and generation of toxic and perhaps flammable by-products. The volume provides chemical specific information, providing the reader with rigorous information on the chemical of interest. This book is a compendium of chemical specific fire and chemical reactivity data and information. More than 1,000 chemicals have been researched and organized into a reference handbook for fire specialists, chemical handling specialists, and plant safety engineers. The specific information provided for chemicals includes the flammability characteristics, recommended fire extinguishing practices, fire extinguishing agents not to be used, behavior in fires, burning characteristics, chemical reactivity with regard to water and common materials, incompatible chemical mixtures, containment and neutralization methods for spills. This reference book has been designed as a data bank for the hazardous materials handling specialist and industrial safety managers dealing with large chemical inventories. It is intended to be used by fire and loss prevention specialists and as a basis for developing procedures for safe storing and handling of chemicals. The authors have included an extensive physical properties section on chemicals, with information most pertinent to fire response situations.
