This book covers almost everything that NFPA 472 identifies as a first responder competency.

Scope of the Field Guide

Comparison to NFPA 472 and 473 Competencies

The First Responder's Field Guide to Hazmat & Terrorism Emergency Response covers almost everything that NFPA 472 identifies as competencies for first responders at the operations level. It also covers many of the EMS provider competencies identified in NFPA 473.

Not Just for First Responders

Although the field guide is geared for first responders at the operations level, it provides a great foundation for incident commanders, hazmat technicians, EMS personnel, and anyone else who responds to hazmat incidents or terrorist events.

Guidelines, Not SOPs

The book contains guidelines (or key points) for dealing with different types of incidents, but they are not meant to be SOPs.

Useful as a Field Guide and a Classroom Textbook

Although the book was designed as a field guide, some of my customers use it as a text in their classes because it does cover almost everything NFPA 472 identifies as a first responder competency.
