Evaluating Progress & Terminating the Incident

Runtime: 25 minutes

What are the steps that must be taken to safely terminate the incident once the emergency phase is over?


Whether you are trained to the operations, technician or command level, the first task of every first responder to a hazmat or WMD emergency is the same. It's size up - or what the NFPA standard on hazmat competencies calls Analyzing the Incident. A systematic risk-based response begins with an analysis of the problem - assessing the hazards, evaluating the potential consequences and then choosing the best response actions.
