Site Control American ERT Hazardous Materials Training
Site Control 2 Objectives To be able to develop strategies and tactics on hazardous materials incidents To be able to develop strategies and tactics on hazardous materials incidents To understand risk/benefit analysis To understand risk/benefit analysis To be able to properly control a hazardous materials scene To be able to properly control a hazardous materials scene

Site Control 4 DECIDE Detect Hazardous Material Detect Hazardous Material –Size up –What do I have? Estimate Course and Harm Estimate Course and Harm –Where is it going? Choose Objectives Choose Objectives –Where do I want it to go? Identify tactical options Identify tactical options –What tools do I have? Do the best option Do the best option Evaluate the results Evaluate the results
Site Control 5 Detect Product – MSDS, shipping papers, eye witnesses, experts, preplan, container, markings, placards, research books/programs Product – MSDS, shipping papers, eye witnesses, experts, preplan, container, markings, placards, research books/programs Environment – Where could the product go, weather forecast Environment – Where could the product go, weather forecast Container – Binoculars, ERG, 49 CFR, damage assessment Container – Binoculars, ERG, 49 CFR, damage assessment
Site Control 6 Estimate course and harm Where is this going if I dont intervene? Where is this going if I dont intervene? What if I do? What if I do? Risk/Hazard Assessment (whats the trade off?) Risk/Hazard Assessment (whats the trade off?)
Site Control 7 Snakes! Whyd it have to be Snakes?
Site Control 12 Sizing Up the Scene Product, container, environment Product, container, environment Hazards Hazards –Thermal –Radiation –Asphyxiation –Chemical –Etiological –Mechanical Risks Risks –Results from our actions (turning valves, applying water, mixing chemicals)
Site Control 13 Choose Objectives Follows the 3 incident priorities Follows the 3 incident priorities –Life Safety –Incident stabilization –Property conservation Objectives may include: Objectives may include: –Rescue –Vapor control –Spill control –Fire control –Recon –Shut valve Work in operational phases Work in operational phases Have regular briefings Have regular briefings
Site Control 14 Identify tactical options What do I need vs. What do I have? What do I need vs. What do I have? Do I have the necessary lead time? Do I have the necessary lead time?
Site Control 16 Before we go… Decon must be set up before entry Decon must be set up before entry Medical monitoring must be complete Medical monitoring must be complete Right-to-know information Right-to-know information –Same way an employee has the right to know about chemical they are using –They have a right to know about what chemical they are responding to –Signs/symptoms, target organs, emergency actions, PPE
Site Control 17 Evaluate Are things going as planned?
Site Control 18 Evaluate Start the entire process over? Do I have a plan B (back up plan)? Is it time for plan B?
Site Control 19 Site control Initial isolation distance HOT COLD Wind Warm/ Decon Access control point Command, Support, EMS, Staging
Site Control 20 Chlorine release (wind from the south)
Site Control 21 Chlorine release considering all wind directions
Site Control 22 Protecting the Public A Hazmat teams number one goal is to protect the public. A Hazmat teams number one goal is to protect the public. Two ways of this are: Two ways of this are: –Evacuation Best for long duration events Best for long duration events –Shelter-in-place Best for fast moving clouds, events lasting less than an hour Best for fast moving clouds, events lasting less than an hour
23 Release that will take a long time Quick moving vapor cloud
Site Control 24 OSHA Requirements Site specific safety/health plan Site specific safety/health plan –Risk/hazard assessment –Required training to work on site –PPE to be used –Medical surveillance –Air monitoring –Site control measures –Decon –Emergency plan
Site Control 28 Terminating the Incident Clean up Clean up –Account for everything used –Plan for billing and restock –Transfer to responsible party Debrief Debrief –Document all information and actions –Debrief members to gather all information Critique Critique –Review good and bad aspects –Review lessons learned –Document the incident and the critique
