Risk-Based Response examines key issues in the latest edition of NFPA 472 - Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents. This program covers important issues related to safe hazmat response - whether you have new recruits to train or want to provide a stimulating refresher for your team.

This clip features Paul Penn, who has more than thirty years of emergency, environmental, and health & safety management experience. He is currently the founder and president of EnMagine, Inc., the home of the hazardous materials emergency response program for hospitals called HAZMAT for Healthcare.
