Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)

In the event that firefighters must enter a scene where hazardous materials may be present, they must know how to properly assess the situation and take the proper precautions. To do this, they must learn the different kinds of hazardous materials as well as the equipment needed to protect themselves an others when confronted with these materials.

An example of a situation where firefighters may encounter the need for this training can involve a traffic accident where there is a chemical spill.
