Air Monitoring for First Responders
June 20, 2023 @ 08:30 - 12:30Free
Presented by: Captain Scott Russell; Baltimore County HazMat Response Team
This class will teach First Responders how to use a meter properly and understand the readings
they see and the implications of such on an emergency response. It is estimated that 90% of first responders can
turn a meter on but have no idea what the readings mean when it alarms, nor the knowledge of the changing
situation as a meter begins to register readings putting them at significant risk.
This class will be a self-contained course which will include meters, reference materials, and chemicals.
Attendees will learn why they need a meter, and how to use it!
