“Classic” Haz Mat Training Videos - Part 2

Blog Post created by mikehazell Employee on Aug 1, 2014

Yesterday, I posted a blog letting everyone know about some classic or vintage videos I had been made aware of that I wanted to share with you. Part 2 of this series is below. Again, thinks about them from the perspective of, “could this still happen to us [emergency responders] today”. I think you’ll agree that while they will bring back memories of sitting through hazardous materials courses, that they may offer a retrospective and a look at the present. Have we learned all there is to know, have we changed the way respond to these types of incidents, and can we still improve the way we reaction to these incidents?  

HazMat Response Doing it Wrong CMA 1986 (3:05 min)

 

This clip demonstrates how NOT to approach a hazmat incident.  It is from the very good 1986 video, First On the Scene, produced by the Chemical Manufacturer's Association (CMA) for training first responders to the scene of hazardous materials incidents.  This video was widely used in early Hazwoper training classes.  A second posted clip, HazMat Response doing it better 1986, shows the same incident with a better response (but not perfect).

This clip demonstrates a better (but not perfect) approach to a hazmat incident.  It is from the very good 1986 video, First On the Scene, produced by the Chemical Manufacturer's Association (CMA) for training first responders to the scene of hazardous materials incidents.  This video was widely used in early Hazwoper training classes.
