For the first time, HazMat responders have a book that will effectively track exposure to hot zones by recording medical monitoring of vital signs both pre- and post-operations, as well as time “on air” and other duties assigned in the hot zone. This pocket-sized personal log enables individuals to maintain a historical record of personal performance following the completion of training events to actual HazMat incidents. It is ideal for HazMat technicians and trained personnel who respond to and operate in contaminated environments, especially where Level-A or Level-B Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) with Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) is required. “Personal Data Sheets,” a cornerstone of this unique resource, allow individuals to quickly record important information regarding their actions while operating in the hot zone.
