Total of 148 firefighters brushed up on haz-mat responder skills

Press release:

Several offerings of the Hazardous Materials First Responder Operations Refresher course were given across Genesee County over the past few months, providing first responders the opportunity to complete the OSHA required annual refresher.

A total of 148 fire personnel from 11 county fire departments in the area reviewed the competencies for First Responder Awareness and Operations Level Responders.

The competencies included: the nine classes of materials; the use of the U.S. Department of Transportation Emergency Response Guidebook; and principles of containment, confinement and extinguishment within the scope of the duties of a first responder at the Operations Level. 

Visit your local fire department to find out more about volunteer opportunities.
