Hazardous Materials Decontamination Training - CANCELLED

Course Objectives: This 8-hour class will review the concepts of decontamination methods as they relate to protecting patients and first responders from further exposure to toxic substances. Students will understand the concepts of contamination and exposure limits as they relate to their levels of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Several types of decontamination will be reviewed, including emergency, technical, mass and non-ambulatory patient decontamination procedures. Each type will be demonstrated during hands-on exercises and students will have an opportunity to participate. Students are encouraged to bring decontamination equipment from their own fire companies so they become more acclimated to the use of their specific decontamination equipment and supplies. Students MUST also bring firefighters’ PPE self-contained breathing apparatus.
