Consumer Level HazMat

Target Audience: Versions for EMS, Fire, Health Care

Topics: Homemade Chemical Bombs, Chemical Assisted Suicides, SHake ‘N Bake Meth Labs, Protective Equipment, Decontamination and Triage.

Synopsis: EMS personnel are facing a dangerous enemy...the ever-present and changing picture of hazardous materials. The traditional haz-mat situation is well defined, with responders playing a specific role. We’ve become accustomed to events at commercial and industrial facilities, now facing the fact that “average” people are using hazardous materials to create chemical bombs, manufacture methamphetamine and even commit suicide. These “consumer-level” hazardous materials event are occurring in parking lots, playgrounds, schools, and even automobiles. They often go unrecognized until its too late and are life threatening to EMS responders...all made with retail products off the shelves of every store.
