With the frequency and severity of hazardous materials emergencies rising, controlling and managing the risks of hazardous materials releases continually present new challenges for emergency responders. Hazardous Materials Operations guides readers through operational decision making and is organized in a sequence that mirrors the logical progression of a hazardous materials response.
