Michigan Hazmat Team Awarded NFPA Educational Grant

Applications for the 2012 grant must be submitted by Sept. 15, 2011.

The 2011 Warren E. Isman Educational Grant is being given to the Western Wayne County Hazardous Materials Response Team from Livonia, Mich., by the National Fire Protection Association's Fire Safety Educational Memorial Fund Committee.

"The Western Wayne County HMRT has demonstrated the leadership, communication, and training skills needed to effectively mitigate a wide range of hazmat incidents within their region," said Ken Isman, chair of the Warren E. Isman Task Force, a subcommittee of the fund committee and son of the late Chief Warren Isman. "We are very pleased to support their achievements and help further their efforts in protecting the public."

The late chief was fire chief in Fairfax County, Va., a senior instructor for the University of Maryland Fire Service Extension Program, and chairman of NFPA's Technical Committee on Hazardous Materials Response Personnel and the International Association of Fire Chiefs' Committee on Hazardous Materials.

The $5,000 grant can go to any established incident response team from a fire department, police department, or other publicly funded program. Applicants are evaluated for leadership and communication abilities and must have been trained in accordance with NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents, and NFPA 473, Standard for Competencies for EMS Personnel Responding to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents. The deadline for 2012 applications is Sept. 15, 2011.
