This training on air monitoring, the first in a two-part series, covers contamination assessment for a hazardous materials incident. A hazardous material incident may involve the release of air contaminants, posing a risk to emergency responders, civilians in the area and to the environment. Emergency responders need to be able to identify contaminants and the air concentration before any incident response efforts can commence.

The course provides explanations of air contaminants, fixed monitoring, direct reading instruments, personal air sampling, incident size-up, entering the hot zone, the command post, monitoring the hot zone and decontamination. The second course in this series provides more information on direct reading instruments. Use this course to provide emergency responders with the information to approach air contamination during a hazardous material incident.
