This course provides the student with the basic skills necessary to safely and effectively manage the on-scene operations involving the uncontrolled release of dangerous chemicals. As such it focuses on those individuals in local jurisdictions who respond to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances as part of the initial response to the site for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment from the effects of the release. They are trained to respond in a defensive fashion to contain the release from a safe distance, keeping it from spreading, and preventing exposures. The course is designed to meet the training responsibilities as outlined by OSHA, CFR 1910.120 and NFPA 472 for the Operations Level.  

Prerequisite:  Participants must be proficient and qualified at donning SCBA.
