Who Should Take This Course?
This EMS-CE (4 Hours) online HAZMAT First Responder Awareness Level I (FRA) for EMS course is designed for EMS Responders involved in hazardous materials emergency response at the awareness level. These first responders are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and may need to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper authorities. They would take no further action beyond notifying the authorities. This training applies to workers only when they are functioning as EMS Responders.
The DOT Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) will be needed during the training, which is available to each student in a downloadable PDF format.
Students who take the First Responder Operations FRO training are not required to take First Responder Awareness FRA training. The FRO course meets the training requirement for both responder levels.
This course is provided by Safety Unlimited and has been approved for 4 hours of BLS/ALS Instructor Based Continuing Education by C.E. provider 56-0013, CAPCE Provider #SUNI0321.
