Physical and Chemical Properties for Risk Based Response

Instructor: Brian Ramsey

Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm

Location: Edmond Fire Training Center


Hazards, risks and consequences during this 8 hour highly interactive class, participants will understand the significance in using physical and chemical properties to assess hazards encountered at hazardous materials incidents, apply physical and chemical properties to manage risk during hazardous materials incidents, and understand consequences of how things can go wrong on hazardous materials incidents.  During this lecture, flash point, vapor density and solubility will be demonstrated.  This lecture will also demonstrate the properties of liquefied compressed gasses as well as cryogenics.  These high energy fast paced demonstrations will leave the audience/students with a keen awareness of street smart chemistry of hazardous materials and how to apply physical and chemical properties to Risk Based Emergency Response!
