HAZMATTERS: Birmingham Fire and Rescue
Today, we take a look at the HAZMATTERS from Birmingham Fire and Rescue, from Birmingham, Alabama. These municipal responders out of Jefferson County Alabama are staffed full time around the city. A full staff of 30, who also run assignments on other trucks, protect a population of 250,000.
As part of their response area, the crew faces many potential challenges. Some of which include major highways, 3 hospitals, and even biosafety Level 3 labs. These biomedical facilities include work on microbes that can cause serious or potentially lethal disease. The crews stay well up to date with multiple dedicated training days throughout their week

HazSim Pro training system has been used to train across the U.S since 2011. Trainers in HazMat and Confined Space realized that ‘tapping the student on the shoulder’ was NOT effective training. This system uses NO hazardous materials and although may not look exactly like your front line meter, shows the important data which the all students needs to learn to ‘react’ to.
