Abstract : The primary mission of the Environmental Protection for Hazardous Materials (HAZMATs) Incidents project was to assist U.S. Air Force (USAF) fire department personnel in HAZMAT incident management. This objective involved (1) a definition of the extent of HAZMATs, (2) a review of pertinent regulations and job requirements pertaining to HAZMAT incidents including decision making and response during emergencies. (3) identification and refinement of a computer- assisted incident management system, and (4) a definition of HAZMAT-related issues for fire department personnel, including, training and protective clothing. Within the framework of the objective, all major HAZMAT-incident related issues were identified and, to some extent, characterized. Included are proposed solutions to identified problems.
