This fifth edition is a complete training solution for hazardous materials technicians and incident commanders. In 1982, the authors Mike Hildebrand and Greg Noll, along with Jimmy Yvorra, first introduced the concept of the Eight-Step Process(c) for managing hazardous materials incidents when their highly regarded manual, Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident was published. Now in its Fifth Edition, this text is widely used by firefighters, hazmat teams, bomb squads, industrial emergency response teams, and other emergency responders who manage unplanned hazardous materials incidents. To address changing government regulations, consensus standards, and the need for terrorism response training, Mr. Noll has updated all chapters to reflect NFPA 470 2022, which includes NFPA 1072 for HazMat Technician, HazMat Incident Commander, and HazMat Officer. Also included are a new Chapter 5 on Hazardous Materials Chemistry, which provides additional material on the NFPA 470/1072 chemistry job performance requirements, including physical and chemical properties and basic principles of hazardous materials chemistry.
