ACRONYM USED TO REMEMBER THE 11 CLASSES OF OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IN ORDER. EVERY CAREFUL FIREFIGHTER OUGHTA PRACTICE RECOGNIZING CORROSIVE MATERIALS OR FRY
CLASS 1 HAZMAT DIVISIONS MAJOR HAZARD EXPLOSIVES DIVISIONS 6 EXPLOSION
CLASS 2 HAZMAT DIVISIONS MAJOR HAZARD COMPRESSED GASES DIVISIONS 3 BLEVE
CLASS 3 HAZMAT MAJOR HAZARD FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS AND COMBUSTIBLES BURNS READILY
CLASS 4 HAZMAT DIVISIONS FLAMMABLE SOLIDS DIVISIONS 3 RAPID COMBUSTION WITH MASS AMOUNTS OF TOXIC SMOKE
CLASS 5 HAZMAT DIVISIONS MAJOR HAZARD OXIDIZERS DIVISIONS 2 SUPPORTS COMBUSTION UNSTABLE/REACTIVE
CLASS 6 HAZMAT DIVISIONS MAJOR HAZARDS POISONS DIVISIONS 2 TOXICITY INFECTIOUS
CLASS 7 HAZMAT MAJOR HAZARD RADIOACTIVE RADIOACTIVE POISONOUS BURNS
CLASS 8 HAZMAT MAJOR HAZARDS CORROSIVES BURNS/EMULSIFICATION SKIN DAMAMGE
CLASS 9 HAZMAT MAJOR HAZARD MISCELLANEOUS HAZARDOUS DURING TRANSPORT NOT INCLUDED IN OTHER CLASSES
CLASS 10 HAZMAT MAJOR HAZARD OTHER REGULATED MATERIALS LIMITED HAZARD DURING TRANSPORT DUE TO FORM, QUANTITY, AND PACKAGING
CLASS 11 HAZMAT MAJOR HAZARD FORBIDDEN PROHIBITED FROM BEING OFFERED OR ACCEPTED AS TRANSPORT
ACRONYM FOR CLASS 1 DIVISIONS MOST PEOPLE FIND ME VERY EXCITING 1.1 MASS 1.2 PROJECTILE 1.3 FIRE 1.4 MINOR 1.5 VERY INSENSITIVE 1.6 EXTREMELY INSENSITIVE
CLASS 2 DIVISIONS 2.1 FLAMMABLE GAS 2.2 NONFLAMMABLE, NONPOISONOUS GAS 2.3 POISONOUS GAS
CLASS 4 DIVISIONS 4.1 FLAMMABLE SOLID 4.2 SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTIBLE 4.3 DANGEROUS WHEN WET
CLASS 5 DIVISIONS 5.1 YIELDING OXYGEN, ENHANCES COMBUSTION 5.2 ORGANIC PEROXIDE, ORGANIC COMPOUND CONTAINING OXYGEN
CLASS 6 DIVISIONS 6.1 POISONOUS MATERIAL OTHER THAN GAS 6.2 INFECTIOUS SUBSTANCE, VIABLE MICRO ORGANISM
AWARENESS LEVEL RESPONDERS SHALL MEET ALL COMPETENCIES OF NFPA 472 CHAPTER 4
AWARENESS LEVEL RESPONDERS SHALL RECEIVE ADDITIONAL TRAINING TO MEET APPLICABLE USDOT, EPA, AND OSHA REQUIREMENTS
AWARENESS LEVEL DEFINITION A PERSON WHO, IN THE NORMAL COURSE OF THEIR DUTIES COULD ENCOUNTER AN EMERGENCY INVOLVING HAZARDOUS MATERIALS/WMD AND WHO ARE EXPECTED TO RECOGNIZE THE PRESENCE OF A HAZMAT/WMD, PROTECT THEMSELVES, CALL FOR TRAINED PERSONNEL, AND SECURE THE AREA
AWARENESS LEVEL GOAL PROVIDE FIRST RESPONDERS WITH THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO PERFORM THE FOLLOWING TASKS SAFELY; ANALYZE THE INCIDENT IMPLEMENT ACTIONS
ANALYZE THE INCIDENT INVOLVES THREE THINGS 1. DETECT THE PRESENCE OF HAZMAT/WMD 2. SURVEY FROM A SAFE LOCATION TO IDENTIFY NAME, UN/NA #, TYPE OF PLACARD, OR OTHER DISTINCTIVE MARKINGS 3. COLLECT HAZ INFORMATION FROM THE ERG
IMPLEMENTING ACTIONS CONSISTENT WITH THREE THINGS LOCAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE PLAN (LERP) STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES (SOP) DOT EMERGENCY RESPONSE GUIDEBOOK (ERG)
TWO PARTS OF INITIATING IMPLEMENT ACTIONS INITIATE PROTECTIVE ACTIONS INITIATE NOTIFICATION PROCESS
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS AS DEFINED BY NFPA 472 A SUBSTANCE THAT WHEN RELEASED IS CAPABLE OF CREATING HARM TO PEOPLE PROPERTY ENVIRONMENT
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IN CANADA ARE CALLED DANGEROUS GOODS
HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE EPA TERM FOR CHEMICALS IF RELEASED INTO THE ENVIRONMENT ABOVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT
EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE EPA TERM CHEMICALS THAT MUST BE REPORTED IF RELEASED ABOVE THE THRESHOLD REPORTING QUANTITY
TOXIC CHEMICALS EPA TERM CHEMICALS WHOSE TOTAL EMISSIONS OR RELEASE MUST BE REPORTED BY CERTAIN FACILITIES THAT MANUFACTURE, PROCESS, OR USE LISTED TOXIC CHEMICALS
HAZARDOUS WASTE EPA TERM FOR CHEMICALS THAT ARE REGULATED UNDER THE RESOURCE CONSERVATION AND RECOVERY ACT (RCRA)
HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS OSHA TERM CHEMICAL THAT WOULD BE A RISK TO EMPLOYEES IF EXPOSED
DIVISION 1.1 MASS EXPLOSION AFFECTS ALMOST THE ENTIRE LOAD INSTANTANEOUSLY. BLACK POWDER, DYNAMITE, TNT, BLASTING CAPS, NITROGLYCERIN
DIVISION 1.2 PROJECTION HAZ. BUT NOT EXPLOSION HAZ. AERIAL FLARES, DETONATION CORD, AND POWER DEVICE CARTRIDGES
DIVISION 1.3 EXPLOSIVES THAT HAVE A FIRE HAZ. BUT EITHER MINOR BLAST AND/OR PROJECTION HAZ. PRACITE AMMUNITION, SIGNAL CARTRIDGES
DIVISION 1.4 MINOR EXPLOSION HAZ
DIVISION 1.5 HAVE MASS EXPLOSION HAZARD BUT ARE SO VERY INSENSITIVE THERE IS LITTLE PROBABILITY OF INITIATION AMMONIUM NITRATE FERTILIZER
DIVISION 1.6 EXTREMELY INSENSITIVE DO NOT HAVE A MASS EXPLOSIVE HAZ. EXPLOSIVE SQUIB DEVICES
DIVISION 2.1 FLAMMABLE GAS ANY MATERIAL THAT IS A GAS AT 68F OR LESS IS IGNITABLE AT MIXTURE OF 13% OR LESS
DIVISION 2.2 NONFLAMMABLE, NONPOISONOUS GAS CRYOGENIC LIQUID MEANS HAVING A BOILING POINT COLDER THAN -130
DIVISION 2.3 POISONOUS GAS
HAZARD ZONES FOR POISONOUS GAS THE LOWER THE NUMBER THE LESS IT TAKES TO KILL YOU HAZ ZONE A 200PPM B 200-1000PPM C 1000-3000PPM D 3000-5000PPM
FLAMMABLE LIQUID FLASH POINT OF 140 OR LESS
COMBUSTIBLE LIQUID FLASH POINT OF 140 OR GREATER
DIVISION 4.1 FLAMMABLE SOLID WETTED EXPLOSIVES SELF-REACTIVE MATERIALS REDILY COMBUSTIBLE SOLIDS
DIVISION 4.2 SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL AIR REACTIVE PYROPHORIC MATERIAL CAN IGNITE WITHIN 5 MINS AFTER COMING INTO CONTACT WITH AIR SELF HEATING MATERIALS
DIVISION 4.3 DANGEROUS WHEN WET
DIVISION 5.1 OXIDIZER; YIELDING OXYGEN, CAUSE OR ENHANCE COMBUSTION OF OTHER MATERIALS
DIVISION 5.2 ORGANIC PEROXIDE; ORGANIC COMPOUND CONTAINING OXYGEN TYPE A; CAN DETONATE OR DEFLAGRATE/CAN'T TRANSPORT TYPE B; CAN'T DETONATE OR DEFLAGRATE/CAN TRANSPORT TYPE C; CAN'T DETONATE, DEFLAGRATE, OR UNDERGO THREMAL EXPLOSION
DIVISION 6.1 POISONOUS MATERIALS
DIVISION 6.2 INFECTIOUS MATERIALS
DANGEROUS PLACARD MUST BE 1001 POUNDS OR MORE AND TWO OR MORE MATERIALS
