Hazardious Materials First Responder Operations (FRO)

Saturday, May 5, 2018

FRO as the minimum training for all public safety personnel. FRO training is required for “individuals who respond to releases or potential releases as part of the initial response to the site for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, property, or the environment. They are trained to respond in a defensive fashion without actually trying to stop the release. Their function includes preventing exposures.” (29 CFR 1910.120 (q) and Title 8, CCR 5192 (q) ) Due to the ever-present risk of a spontaneously reporting contaminated patient, we also recommend this level for select hospital ED and support personnel. FRO training also provides a sound basis for many WMD preparedness, response, casualty care and decontamination courses.
