(See general operational checklist.)
(See general operational checklist.)
[ ] Gather appropriate hazardous material information from local sources.
[ ] Conduct a local site survey (and if possible, an aerial reconnaissance) for the general area (approximately a five mile radius). Sketch the general area and note the following:

  • Location and status of major fixed facilities and transportation lines (i.e., nuclear power facilities, hazardous waste sites, refineries, etc.);

  • Topography;

  • Prevailing weather conditions (i.e., present, 6-hour, 24-hour, and 72-hour forecasts);

  • Evidence of smoke, flame, vapor cloud, etc.; and

  • Visible structural damage to critical facilities.

[ ] Check on the local capacity to treat possible hazardous material exposure victims.

[ ] Ensure availability of decontamination, in the event of contact, as appropriate for any TF personnel or victim. This will consist of a rapid emergency decontamination to be followed by a more thorough technical decontamination if indicated.
[ ] Assess the availability of local response capabilities to mitigate possible hazardous material situations.
[ ] Identify issues that could require the determination of 1) conditional entry, or 2) the cessation of TF operations, such as damage to nuclear facilities or installations causing the migration of hazardous products toward the specific rescue area.

[ ] Conduct a survey at specific rescue sites or other confined space areas to include:

  • Flammable atmospheres (10% of the Lower Explosive Limit);

  • Oxygen deficiencies;

  • Radiation levels;

  • Biological agents or contaminants;

  • Asbestos contamination; and

  • Other specific products, as indicated.

[ ] Deny entry, unless appropriate protective action is taken, if the following conditions exist:

  • Any positive flammable gas indicator readings;

  • Oxygen levels below 19.5% or above 22.0%;

  • Any toxic material readings within 10% of its Immediate Danger to Life and Health (IDLH);

  • Obvious or perceptible fumes, odors, smoke, or vapor from a confined space, or where vision is obscured within five foot levels; and

  • Asbestos hazards.

[ ] Document all events and forward to the Technical Information Specialist. The following, as a minimum, are required:

  • Site survey;

  • Site safety plan in conjunction with the Safety Officer;

  • Perimeter and entry readings;

  • Personal exposure forms; and

  • Medical surveillance records.

[ ] Verify meter readings with a second meter and different operator, if possible. All readings will be documented according to operator and meter unit number, and will denote the findings, time, and location.

[ ] Monitor ongoing working rescue sites as necessary. Provide technical assistance to the appropriate supervisory position.

[ ] Keep the HAZMAT Team Manager apprised of any tactical accomplishments or conflicts, supplies deficiencies, or equipment malfunctions.
