Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I am wondering what HazMat Training does your department require?

Part two:
Do you feel that your guys need more training for HazMat?

Part 3
How many times a year do you train on HazMat?

Remember be SAFE & TRAIN as training will save lives- Todd

My department requires through our County Fire Chief's Association for members to be trained at the Operations Level. This allows us to have a deffensve attack for the emergency, however we do ahve everal Techs on our department,.With me being a commander and a HazMat Instructor we get to train on HazMat several times a year. I did not feel that Operations is enough training and feel that A tech is the level all members should be. Todd
