The Maine Fire Service Institute (MFSI) in collaboration with the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is very pleased to bring this ten day National Fire Academy Program to Maine. Chemistry for Emergency Response.
This course is intended for first responders who are part of hazardous materials teams in Maine and priority will be given to those team members. Others are encouraged to apply just understand the target audience is first priority. Please refer to the advertisement for more information.
“This class gave me deep insight, not only on Hazardous Materials response, but a deeper universal understanding of flammable and combustible materials and how they react to real world situations. Fire Officers today are faced with many different circumstances and have to make strategic and tactical decisions immediately upon arrival when seconds count. Having this material in your mental toolbox will certainly help affect a positive outcome when the alarm rings.”
Jim Graves, Director MFSI
