Hazardous Materials Study Test Questions
Jones & Bartlett provides a very in depth look into all things hazardous materials in their book Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident, 4th Edition. There is information in this book that would be useful for any position in a fire department from driver/operator to company officer or even chief officer.
What I do like about this book, and as the title suggests, there is plenty of information for fire officers to learn how to manage a hazardous materials incident. It includes an actual 8 step process for managing a hazmat incident while also dedicating an entire chapter explaining common problems faced when managing an incident of this type. Something that is not often covered in fire service textbooks, but is covered in this book is how to terminate an incident. There is probably a reason for that because a hazardous materials incident is a complex incident that involves many agencies to successfully conclude. I like that it covers the termination part of a hazmat call because that can be a confusing area that most firefighters are not familiar with.
Depending on what level of firefighter promotional exam you are taking, be careful to stay out of the weeds in this book. If you are taking a chief officer promotion test then you probably do not need to focus too much on all the different classes and types of transportation tanks and trailers. Although you should probably focus a lot on the chapters covering how to manage a hazardous materials incident. The opposite is true if you are taking an apparatus driver/operator test. This book can easily bury you in the minute details that it provides, so pay attention to what is applicable to the rank you are promoting to.
