    Default firefighter response to mva

    just wondering if anyone has the training requirements or know where i can find them on the net easily? was looking for the one about whether or not you need hazmat-ops! i am pretty sure you do and i can't find it in our library at the station, or anywhere else for that manor, could use a little help.

    Unless they recently changed it, you should only need hazmat awareness to repsond on MVAs. All EMS personell get hazmat awareness during basic emt school. They don't do hazmat ops, and they respond to MVAs.

    any idea if this is written anywhere, and most emt classes around here aren't getting awarness with them not sure about paramedic classes but i know that emt classes aren't. what brought this up is i heard that you need to have atleast FFII and ops, or a medical license to even be on scene of an mva, and was just looking to see if anyone could point in the direction where i might find this. i have called the state on this and they said they will get back to me!
    thanks for your help.

    Not sure where it's written, but haz ops is required for FFI and II. Haz Ops is not neccessary for response to MVAs. If it was, every cop, flight nurse and EMS provider would have to have it as well.
