Overview

Firefighters and first response crews bear an enormous responsibility. They are not only responsible for the search and rescue of potential victims, but also for securing and clearing a scene to prevent wider spread contamination. While they work to protect their fellow citizens, they must consider their own personal safety as well.

Personal protective clothing and equipment is designed to reduce exposure to chemicals, biological agents, radioactive particles, heat, and other contaminants. Understanding what equipment is needed for a scene, how it should be worn and used, as well as how contaminated articles should be disposed of is crucial to safe and effective work.

Biological, chemical, and terror attacks require many first responders, you may have to deploy individuals with less extensive training, and you may have more responders than protective equipment. How can you still work safely and effectively? Provide this self-protection online training video to all of your personnel today.
