Features

For courses in Hazardous Materials.

 Hazardous Materials  Operations is designed for firefighters, law enforcement personnel, emergency medical services (EMS) providers, and industry employees that may be faced with hazardous materials emergencies. This text follows the 2008 NFPA 472 competencies and is organized to follow the logical progression of a hazardous materials response. Providing technical information that can be used for initial training and periodic recurrent training, this book must be complemented with hands-on activities designed to reinforce key response concepts. Resource Central, an online student and instructor supplements portal, is available to instructors online and has suggested hands-on activities and exercises for each chapter, review questions, case studies and much more!

 

Hallmark Features:

 

The inclusion of mission specific competencies per NFPA 472–effectively brings what historically were Technician-level competencies to the Operations level.

·        This allows personnel with significantly less training than a hazardous materials technician to perform in the hot zone.

·        This provides employers with the flexibility to train their personnel to specific job functions — such as victim rescue for firefighters, mass decontamination for EMS providers, and illicit laboratory investigation for police officers.

 

The information in this book must be complemented with hands-on activities–designed to reinforce key response concepts.

·        Resource Central available to instructors online has suggested hands-on activities and exercises for each chapter.

ALERT: Before you purchase, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a CourseID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products.
