HAZMAT INCIDENT MANAGEMENT SERIES:
THE 8 STEP PROCESS
Video on VHS or DVD - 8 volumes
by Emergency Film Group

The 8 Step Process is a video training series produced by Emergency Film Group
designed to provide training to emergency response personnel who may be called
upon to respond to a leak, spill or a fire involving hazardous chemicals.
About the series

In 1982, Mike Hildebrand, Greg Noll and Jimmy Yvorra first introduced the concept
of the 8-Step Process for managing hazmat incidents when their highly-regarded
manual, Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident was published by IFSTA. The
book is in wide use by fire fighters, hazmat teams, bomb squads, industrial
emergency response teams and other emergency responders who may deal with
unplanned hazardous materials leaks, spills or fire during the course of their work.

Changing government regulations and consensus standards have caused the
authors to modify and refine this process and publish a second edition. Hildebrand
and Noll now have teamed up with Emergency Film Group to illustrate the ideas
behind the eight-step process in a series of videos intended to accompany their
book. This series will be useful for helping to satisfy the training requirements of
OSHA's Hazwoper rule as well as NFPA 471 and NFPA 472.

Narrated by Greg Noll and Mike Hildebrand

ABOUT SITE MANAGEMENT & CONTROL

Program One in the series, Site Management & Control, discusses preplanning to
set up a systematic, coordinated approach to a hazmat accident, which may
involve a variety of public and private agencies. It covers procedures for establishing
command, guidelines for safe approach and positioning at a hazmat incident,
establishing the perimeter and hazard control zones, and procedures for carrying
out protective actions. The importance of setting up effective command is stressed.

ABOUT IDENTIFYING THE PROBLEM

The second program in the series covers the importance of recognizing, identifying
and verifying the hazardous material or materials involved in the incident. The video
shows how to recognize the presence of hazmats, and, if the material cannot be
identified specifically, how to determine the general hazard class or chemical
family of the material. Specific information needed to identify the problem is listed.
The program also discusses the basic design and construction features of
hazardous materials containers. DOT hazard classes and placarding are
explained, as is NFPA's Standard System for the Identification of the Hazards of
Materials for Emergency Response.

ABOUT HAZARD AND RISK EVALUATION

In Program 3, responders learn how to determine response objectives, sources for
hazard information, and how to evaluate risks. The importance of maintaining an
attitude of safety and responsibility is stressed. Risk factors - those factors that
influence the level of risk at an incident - are outlined and air monitoring
instruments are studied. A basic understanding of how hazmats and their
containers behave is provided through Ludwig Benner's General Hazardous
Materials Behavior Model (Gebmo).

ABOUT PROTECTIVE CLOTHING & EQUIPMENT

This program covers the different types of protective clothing and equipment, as
well as the advantages and disadvantages of each type. The difference between
structural firefighting clothing and chemical protective clothing is explained.
Respiratory protection, including self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and
SAR (supplied air respirators) is studied. NFPA standards that mandate the quality
that protective clothing must meet are examined and EPA levels of protection are
listed. The viewer is warned about the dangers of degradation, penetration and
permeation.

ABOUT INFORMATION MANAGEMENT & RESOURCE COORDINATION

The fifth program in the series examines the types of information needed to
manage a hazmat incident safely, how to evaluate that information, and how to
coordinate multiple resource groups at a hazmat incident. The importance of
controlling the flow of information and having effective leadership is emphasized.
The Incident Management System is outlined and the various roles played in a
response are explained. Efficient storage and recovery of information is also
discussed.

ABOUT IMPLEMENTING RESPONSE OBJECTIVES

Program 6 explains how the incident commander implements the best available
strategic goals and tactical objectives to produce the most favorable outcome to
the incident. The differences between tactics and strategies are explained. Primary
hazmat strategic goals are covered, including rescue, public protective actions,
spill control, leak control, fire control, and transfer and recovery. Other topics
covered include selecting goals; decision-making; and offensive vs. defensive
mode.

ABOUT DECONTAMINATION

Contamination is any form of hazardous material that physically remains on
people, animals or objects and that poses a threat to life, health or the
environment. This video tells how contamination occurs and discusses
decontamination of persons and equipment after leaving the hot zone. All current
methods of decontamination are covered, including dilution, absorption, adsorption,
heating, freezing, blowing, vacuuming, degradation, neutralization, solidification,
disinfection, and sterilization. Setting up the decon site and the responsibilities of
the decon officer and the decon team are explained. Other topics covered include
emergency decon, multiple station decon, medical emergencies, evaluating the
effectiveness of decon operations, and clean-up.

ABOUT TERMINATING THE INCIDENT

The transition phase between the end of the emergency and the start of restoration
and recovery operations is the topic of the final program in The 8-Step Process.
This program tells how to do a post-incident analysis, how to conduct a debriefing,
and how to critique the response. It is important during this phase of the process
to focus on lessons learned.
