The Meter Guys: Air Monitoring
June 21 @ 13:00 - 15:00Free
Presented by: Scott Russell, Captain; 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 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 that will include meters, reference materials, and chemicals.
Attendees will learn why they need a meter, and how to use it!
