Chem Suicide Training using realistic scenarios and real meter readings – via HazSim

An unfortunate real danger to first responders is a rare but deadly circumstance involving suicide by chemical gas exposure with the intent to hurt those coming to aid the victim. With the HazSim we have been able to replicate this scenario in drills. In this video we discuss a drill where we had students survey a parking lot to look for the ‘suspect’ vehicle. Students experienced real-time feedback and then were able to make decisions and articulate their findings to the incident commander.  Emergency response training should be realistic, challenging, and give the student life saving skills.  More at
