RMFD Firefighter attends weeklong Hazardous Materials Training

RMFD FF Colin Barr attended a weeklong “Statewide WMD Response: Hazardous Materials Technician A” class, sponsored by the Illinois Terrorism Task Force, on October 7-11, 2013.



In the class, instructors from around the state shared their knowledge about chemical, biological, radiological threats and containment/cleanup procedures. Firefighters practiced putting on protective HazMat suits, and performing difficult tasks. The class culminated with several large-scale, mock-HazMat events.
