Abstract:

The primary mission of the Environmental Protection for Hazardous Materials HAZMATs Incidents project was to assist U.S. Air Force USAF fire department personnel in HAZMAT incident management. This objective involved 1 a definition of the extent of HAZMATs, 2 a review of pertinent regulations and job requirements pertaining to HAZMAT incidents including decision making and response during emergencies. 3 identification and refinement of a computer- assisted incident management system, and 4 a definition of HAZMAT-related issues for fire department personnel, including, training and protective clothing. Within the framework of the objective, all major HAZMAT-incident related issues were identified and, to some extent, characterized. Included are proposed solutions to identified problems.
