I read a previous version from this book, and decided to buy it. Had to wait until the latest edition arrived, and it was totally worth it. Very complete, lots of references, great images and useful charts. The book scheme helps on a better undestanding of incident management, and is good if you want to configure a basic class or if you need a more technical approach. I will use it as one of my main references (with NFPA, OSHA, EPA and United Nations docs) in order to configure emergency response trainings in Perú, South America. The book comes also with a personal access password for Jones & Batlett Learning, I haven't seen it yet but looks good... interesting freebie.One downside, and this is for people: I'll never ever will ask for delivery outside USA. I paid like $15 for freight to South America, but the UPS people charged me like US$55 more in Perú for "local warehouse expenses". Actually, I could have taken the free option inside USA and ask a friend or relative of mine to send it to me by regular mail. The freight calculation chart indicated by is, in my opinion, not clear and not accurate.Finally, a couple documents you should have next to you for complementing this book: ERG 2012, NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards 2010, Google Earth / Google Maps open, Orange Book and Purple Book from United Nations (digital version is OK), maybe some free software from NOAA like Chemical Reactivity Worksheet (CRW) and access to CAMEO website. It's all there waiting for you.
This is the second of Mr. Noll's texts on the topic that I read, and I have to admit this edition is easier to comprehend.Though I only serve as a medical specialist to a Hazardous Incident Response Team, I found this book to be instrumental in developing my understanding of the essential steps of response to a chemical AND WMD event. Reading this after my "operations" course conducted by a nationally recognized program provider, this text would have made many of the tougher lessons crystal clear, should I have had access to it at that time.It should be noted that the author serves on the 'de facto' standards review committee, and this edition represents the cutting edge of best practices at the time of print. Highly recommended without reservation.
It's ok to read I would buy this item again. It's a must have for my promotional test in order to score high
Required book for sons firefighting degree. You must read the book to pass the class. Having it alone will not give you the grade to pass.
screw Band N!!! They wanted wouldnt let me use my coupon on this book cause it was a "textbook." Thanks for being reasonable!
This was exactly what we needed for our program delivery. Thank you for getting us what we needed quickly!
