Training and Development
Independent hazardous materials training and development services for the Fire Service
Fire and rescue services and other emergency service responders are required under their remit to take the lead in resolving a range of incidents involving hazardous materials.
In addition to ‘conventional’ incidents involving hazardous materials, the fire and rescue services also have a direct responsibility to respond to the criminal use or release of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear materials (CBRN).
The management and safe resolution of incidents involving hazardous materials requires the application of specialist scientific knowledge and experience. The key to successfully resolving incidents involving hazardous materials is to develop the requisite knowledge to interpret chemical information accurately, and resolve incidents safely and efficiently.
Our scientific advisers draw upon the collective experience of the team to provide real-world examples to highlight how to approach incidents safely and ensure that they are resolved appropriately.
Training consists of classroom input, case studies highlighting real incidents and demonstrations and live exercises to help build a level of underpinning knowledge appropriate to the audience.
