It is recommended that every emergency responder take a hazardous materials operations course. Contact your state fire training agency for further information on these courses.

- Potential Terrorist Tools
- Scene Size Up
- Strategy and Tactics
Every incident has the potential of being a terrorism-initiated event. Observing as you approach the scene can be your first clue. Failure to take proper precautions and utilize available protective clothing and equipment could make you a victim rather than a rescuer.
