Overview

Thoroughly updated for the second edition, the Hazardous Materials Field Guide provides critical information for emergency responders on the scene of an incident. Whether the incident involves hazardous materials, a clandestine laboratory, terrorism or a confined space operation, this user-friendly resource includes information that is consistent with the mission of all agencies. In addition, new information on NIMS, the movement to an international placard system, as well as coverage of bioterrorism materials keeps the guide current with the considerations facing emergency responders today. Flow charts verify critical procedure considerations that must be managed immediately, then set the stage for support response when an incident requires interagency cooperation. Easy to reference, this guide allows rapid identification of placards, labels, silhouettes, and common commodities that move on roadways and railways. Medical considerations are described throughout the text, identifying potential needs of an affected community.
