Hazmat incidents are some of the most dangerous calls facing firefighters. The low-frequency nature of these incidents can lull responders into a sense of complacency – a highly problematic approach given the prevalence of hazardous materials in every jurisdiction.

Any hazmat call requires a measured, deliberate and intensive approach. Successful resolution of a hazmat incident involves the right equipment – and the education and training to use it effectively.

Firefighters of all ranks must develop a risk-focused mindset, asking critical questions about each incident to identify the potential hazards.
