Strategic and tactical decision-making is easy with the Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident Field Operations Guide. In order to minimize the risks associated with hazardous materials emergencies, responders need clear and defined response guidelines that help to define their roles within the response plan. The Eight-Step Process© for managing hazardous materials incidents has been used by thousands upon thousands of responders to safely and systematically deal with HazMat emergencies. The Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident Field Operations Guide (FOG) will help you incorporate the Eight-Step Process© to standardize procedures, bring consistency to the tactical operation, and, as a result, minimize risks at the incident scene. The FOG includes: • Detailed tactical checklists that follow the Eight Step Process, • A section on identification and recognition of containers • Data cards on the top 50 hazardous materials and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE’s). • Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) matrix and drug lab precursor chemicals.
