DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): PROJECT SUMMARY/ABSTRACT HazMat Risk Management, Readiness and Training Platform A unique aspect of hazardous material incidents is that they affect stakeholders in the community with different roles and priorities. Workers in facilities who regularly use or handle hazardous materials, transportation carriers, neighboring communities, first responders, and first receivers (health care workers) are all at risk of health impacts from hazardous materials. Communities can increase their resilience to a hazardous materials incident in several ways, including reducing the likelihood of a release, being prepared to respond to a potential release, and effectively responding if a release does occur. We believe technology advancements and new training strategies can better equip communities for risk reduction and the rapid and effective response to incidents. The technology advancements proposed will collectively cover the HazMat risk life cycle from a facilities prevention and risk management perspective, a first responders pre-planning specific to risks in their community and a HazMat Incident Command training platform.
