Confined Space Entry: This confined space class will cover heavy vehicle stabilization, extrication, and scene management. There is a heavy emphasis in the confined space, scene stabilization, and the rescue techniques used to resolve the emergency. We will also cover the integration of Hazmat, Safety officers, and command into the rescue scene.
Incident Case Studies: The goal of every hazmat incident should be to favorably change the outcome without becoming part of the problem. Two case studies will show how a simple problem-solving process was used to prevent a rescue situation at one incident involving a MC 331 and another incident response with a rescue situation in collaboration with a rescue team involving a non-spec Heated Material Cargo Tank Trailer was successful.

Lastly, the victim/patient and the rescuers will be removed and placed in de-con or an area of safety.
