During this course the students will: demonstrate the individual skills necessary to direct and coordinate all aspects of a hazardous materials incident; implement the incident management system; simulate an activation of the emergency response plan, and state and federal regional response plans; show knowledge and understanding of the importance of decontamination procedures; demonstrate an understanding of hazards associated with employees working in chemical protective clothing; analyze a hazardous materials incident, set objectives, identify potential action plans, evaluate the planned response, complete documentation, and complete the final termination requirements.  This course is FEMA approved.
