Hazardous Materials Chemistry, Third Edition by Armando S. Bevelacqua and Laurie A. Norman explores basic chemical principles, nomenclature, and toxicology so that fire fighters and first responders can effectively identify hazards associated with specific chemicals and chemical families, determine the potential dangers present at a hazardous materials incident, and make safe and informed decisions. Each chapter presents scenarios that discuss real world problems as described within the context of that chapter’s content.

Practical applications of chemical reactions are described within the framework of case studies that focus on specific hazmat incidents, and the importance of understanding chemical reactions and how that knowledge can impact the result of a hazardous materials incident is highlighted. By learning the chemistry behind an incident, students understand how chemical reactions can impact an incident.

Hazardous Materials Chemistry, Third Edition meets the course and learning objectives of the National Fire Academy’s FESHE Model Curriculum for their Hazardous Materials Chemistry program and is appropriate for a fire department hazardous materials chemistry class.
