Course Introduction

First responders frequently encounter hazardous materials (Hazmat) unexpectedly despite general awareness and information sharing efforts between industry and the public safety community. General community-wide planning efforts fail to provide useful products for first responders that enable immediate actions and effective risk assessments during incident response. The tragedies of West, TX, Tianjin, China, and Lac-Magentic, Quebec remind us of the need for effective planning and response to Hazmat incidents. Conducting and implementing Pre-Incident Plans for Hazmat facilities is a way to mitigate future tragedies, but unfortunately many private and public sector planners lack the training needed to do them properly.

This course is designed by ASG's emergency preparedness subject matter experts and builds a foundation of knowledge of the NFPA 1620 Standard for Pre-Incident Planning and helps businesses with the beginning steps of conducting and implementing Pre-Incident Plans for their facilities.
