A fire fighter's ability to recognize an incident involving hazardous materials is critical. They must possess the knowledge required to identify the presence of hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and have an understanding of what their role is within the response plan. Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations will provide fire fighters and first responders with these skills and enable them to keep themselves and others safe while mitigating these potentially deadly incidents. Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations is the center of an integrated teaching and learning system that combines groundbreaking content with dynamic new features to support instructors and to help prepare students for the job. The text meets and exceeds the requirements for Fire Fighter I and II certification and satisfies the core competencies for operations level responders including the eight mission-specific responsibilities for first responders within the 2008 Edition of NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents. Additionally, the material presented also exceeds the hazardous materials response requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations provides in-depth coverage of: the properties and effects of hazardous materials and WMDs; how to calculate potential danger and initiate a response plan; selection, use, advantages, and disadvantages of personal protective equipment; performing mass and technical decontamination; performing evidence preservation and sampling; performing product control. Performing air monitoring and sampling; performing victim rescue and recovery; and responding to illicit laboratory incidents.

(...) Autorzy prezentują znaczenie certyfikacji zarówno dla procesu budowania zaufania do poszczególnych producentów funkcjonujących na rynku, jak i (co ważniejsze) dla bezpieczeństwa przeciwpożarowego, rozumianego jako funkcja operacyjna i prewencyjna ochrony przeciwpożarowej, ale także warunki dla bezpiecznej pracy ratowników. Autorzy dokonują przeglądu metod i zasad certyfikacji, prezentując analizę porównawczą dla czterech krajów Unii Europejskiej (Niemcy, Belgia, Wielka Brytania i Polska) oraz Rosji, jako kraju znajdującego się poza strukturami UE i będącego znaczącym „graczem” na rynku wyrobów i usług przeciwpożarowych. Praca przedstawia międzynarodowe oraz krajowe normy i fakultatywnie wytyczne określające techniczne wymagania dla zabezpieczeń przeciwpożarowych oraz zasady funkcjonowania systemu oceny zgodności i krajowego systemu dopuszczania wyrobów do użytkowania, które „stoją na straży” zgodności wyrobów wprowadzanych na rynek ze stawianymi im wymaganiami. (...) jest to pozycja bardzo potrzebna i bez wątpienia oczekiwana przez wszystkich zajmujących się sferą logistyki w ochronie przeciwpożarowej. Z recenzji dr. Ryszarda Grosseta, profesora Szkoły Głównej Służby Pożarniczej Wydawnictwo CNBOP-PIB
