Many of the unit's first challenges were in combating the increasing threat of the Provisional IRA paramilitary group during The Troubles. Inoperational command of the ERU was placed under the STOC to better reflect the Garda's mandate to provide firearms support and training under one command. It is understood to have more than full-time officers on active duty.
Emergency Response Hazardous Materials Response Team Hazardous Materials personnel, in conjunction with City and County Firefighters, respond to hazardous materials incidents, assist the County District Attorney in the investigation of environmental crimes, and respond to illegal hazardous Emergency response procedure disposal complaints.
Many of these releases are confined to a small area, do not pose a public health threat, and are easily mitigated by the responsible party. Other times, hazardous materials incidents are more extensive, releasing hazardous materials into surrounding areas, threatening groundwater, closing transportation corridors, or contributing to fires or explosions.
These require more extensive emergency response. By definition, any hazardous material has the potential to become a threat if released into the workplace or the environment. Hazardous material response requires highly trained personnel and expensive, specialized equipment.
Initial training for emergency responders can exceed hours of instruction in chemistry, hazard analysis, risk assessment, personal protection and safety, and the use of monitoring equipment. Public Health and Environmental concerns necessitate the presence of educated, trained environmental health professionals.
Personnel, training, and equipment costs are considerable. It is cost prohibitive for most jurisdictions to establish their own comprehensive Hazardous Materials Response Team. From to present the team has grown to over personnel, all trained to the State Fire Marshal approved Hazardous Material Specialist level, and nineteen equipped response vehicles, three of which were provided in whole or in part by cities or districts.
The County is divided into three geographic regions for the purpose of deploying Hazmat trained fire service personnel and vehicles and equipment in close proximity to any incident.
Private citizens can call complaints into 1. As with all other emergencies, hazmat spills which may endanger life or property should be called into 9. Chemical Information As part of the Fire Department's effort to prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies of all types, the Emergency Response program gathers and distributes facility inventory and information describing the properties and hazards of chemicals.
The following sources of facility information are used for emergency response and planning: Hazard Identification Hazardous materials response is a discipline that is mastered through information management. The initial actions at an incident must be taken quickly but with careful consideration of how the chemical will behave under the release conditions which occur at the scene.
Hazmat emergencies can involve a virtually infinite number of chemicals and chemical combinations, and occur under a wide variety of circumstances, from industrial facilities, to highway or railroad incidents, to illegal activities such as clandestine drug laboratories or illegal dumping.
This assessment requires accurate identification, appropriate classification, an adequate understanding of physical and chemical properties of the chemical, and methods for containment or other mitigation.
It also requires some prediction of how these properties will manifest themselves in a real world, uncontrolled situation.
This is not a laboratory; it is a complex and dynamic system, filled with uncertainties. While we cannot eliminate it, we reduce the level of uncertainty through the collective knowledge and skill of the emergency response team.Emergency response plans in the workplace.
