Course Description

This 6-day program focuses on the duties and responsibilities of the emergency response personnel who will assume the Incident Commander role in hazardous materials emergencies above the initial response. Based on current requirements of Title 20 of the Code of Federal Regulations Section 1910.120 (29CFR1910) and the applicable national standards, the program follows 3 phases of an incident: pre-planning, incident operations and post-incident responsibilities. Topics include negligence and liability, planning, and emergency response plans. Evaluation of the studentís knowledge of the subject is attained through written tests and grades scenarios. Evening classes and projects are required.


Target Audience

Emergency response personnel who may be called upon to assume the duties of the IC at hazardous materials incidents as described in 29 CFR 1910.120. Safety officers as described in 29 CFR 1910.120. Departmental training officers, Chief Officers, company officers, and regularly acting officers. Emergency management personnel who would interface with emergency response personnel through an EOC operation at a hazardous materials incident. While safety officers and training officers meet the acceptable criteria for this program, the program is not designed for technician-level personnel.
