I just went through HazMat re certification as a firefighter in May 2015 and thought I had to make this book available. While equal in content to the one issues, this one is published by Skyhorse Publishing and is the very latest available.
Ponder this. You see a car accident. Being the kind of person that shops a store like ours, you want to pull injured people from burning vehicles. One of the vehicles has one of those diamond placards made of four smaller diamonds. No idea what they mean. Not only could you be dead before making it to the victims of the accident, but so could your family members in your vehicle.
No class necessary (but wow, consider contacting your local fire department and ask if you could sit through the next one). This book will help you quickly identify and understand those placards and if you should help, or reverse and race out of there.
From the publisher:
Does the identification number 60 indicate a toxic substance or a flammable solid, in the molten state at an elevated temperature? Does the identification number 1035 indicate ethane or butane? What is the difference between natural gas transmission pipelines and natural gas distribution pipelines? If you came upon an overturned truck on the highway that was leaking, would you be able to identify if it was hazardous and know what steps to take?
Questions like these and more are answered in the Emergency Response Guidebook. Learn how to identify symbols for and vehicles carrying toxic, flammable, explosive, radioactive, or otherwise harmful substances and how to respond once an incident involving those substances has been identified. Always be prepared in situations that are unfamiliar and dangerous and know how to rectify them. Keeping this guide around at all times will ensure that, if you were to come upon a transportation situation involving hazardous substances or dangerous goods, you will be able to help keep others and yourself out of danger. With color-coded pages for quick and easy reference, this is the official manual used by first responders in the United States and Canada for transportation incidents involving dangerous goods or hazardous materials.
