Hazardous Materials

If you are an emergency responder in Washington State, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has provided funding to five (5) consortium schools for responders to attend at no cost to you or your jurisdiction. For those responders working with hazardous materials, the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) provides hands-on specialized training to state and local emergency responders in the management and remediation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) incidents. Located at the former home of the U.S. Army Chemical School, Fort McClellan, the CDP conducts toxic agent training for the nation's civilian emergency response community. The training emergency responders receive at the CDP provides a valid method for ensuring high levels of confidence in equipment, procedures, and individual capabilities.
