  • Description

    Help ensure first responder personnel are qualified for the challenges of Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction emergency response with the JPRs in new NFPA 1072.

    Challenges at the scene of a hazardous materials incident put people, responders, and the environment at critical risk. Protect communities and fire service and emergency first responder personnel with first-time NFPA 1072: Standard for Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Emergency Response Personnel Professional Qualifications. This important new Standard identifies the minimum job performance requirements (JPRs) for Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction emergency response personnel.

    It's specifically designed for use in qualifying individuals through training and certification programs for responsibilities including response to and mitigation of hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction (WMD) incidents.

    NFPA 1072 identifies the minimum JPRs for personnel at the scene of a hazardous materials/WMD incident at the following levels:

    • Awareness
    • Operations
    • Operations mission-specific
    • Hazardous materials technician
    • Incident commander

    Essential for emergency responders, this Standard identifies the knowledge and skills necessary for today's response community.

    This first edition Standard is essential for fire service in general including local and private departments, industrial fire brigades dealing with hazardous materials, fire service training and education agencies, and accreditation and certification organizations. It's also an important resource for law enforcement and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agencies and organizations. (60 pp., 2017)
