Hey Brother, I saw some postings on HazMat, being a HazMat Instructor it caught my Eye. In Ohio A Hazmat Specialist is a support person for a Tech in a particular area ie rail car, amonia, and so on..... Here is goes 4 hours awareness, 16 hours Operations, 40 hours Tech, 16 hours Specialist, and 16 hours commander. It should progress in those levels, hoever depending how you interpet the CFR (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120) you really do not even need to progress in those levels. Of course tradionally in the fire service you take it in steps. I hope you didn't mind me butting in. Remember be safe and train as training will save lives.
Take a look and sign up to our group we could use your input. Tactical Building Blocks & Air Management
This group will focus on aggressive interior firefighting. We will address tactics that increase your chance of not getting jammed up and cover what actions to undertake if you do.We will cover some big issues as well as small tactical tips
Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
We are excited to have you participate in our discussions and interactive forums. Before you begin posting, please take a moment to read our policy page. -- Bobby Halton
