Description This course provides the basic knowledge required to evaluate the potential hazards and behaviors of materials considered to be hazardous for one or a combination of reasons. Directed at the underlying reasons for the chemical behavior of hazardous materials, the course is designed to improve decision-making, safety in operations at incidents, and the possible complex handling problems of materials when they are released from their containers. The course is chemistry oriented, but students without any chemistry background can complete the course of instruction. Students attending this course should be emergency response personnel who have the responsibility for analysis, management, and/or tactical response to a hazardous materials incident, or fire prevention, investigation or inspection personnel who need some knowledge of the hazardous properties of substances.
