Prerequisite for the Company Officer 2D class,
Hazardous Materials Incident Commanders are trained to manage hazardous materials emergencies beyond that of the First Responder. Upon arrival at the scene, they formally assume command from the first responder, who should have already established a working ICS (Incident Command System) and would be the interim Incident Commander.
This course provides the tools a person needs to assume control of an emergency response to a hazardous materials incident. It focuses on legal and practical requirements to safely and competently manage a hazardous materials incident. Instructional methods include class activities, case studies, and tabletop exercises, with an emphasis on hands-on decision-making.
OSHA requires Hazardous Materials Incident Commanders to be trained in accordance with section (q) of the HAZWOPER regulation. The total hourly requirement for Hazardous Materials Incident Commanders is 24 hours. This 16-hour class, coupled with the prerequisites, will bring the student to the 24-hour training level requirement.
Students, please bring a laptop computer with you to class. Class materials will be on student flash drives.
