DOE/IAFF Training for Radiation Emergencies
The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) developed this course
for the Department of Energy (DOE) under the direction of Fluor Daniel Fernald,
DOE's environmental remediation contractor for the Fernald Environmental
Management Project. The goal of this contract was to provide needed information
and a method to train fire departments and other emergency responders who may be
called upon to respond to accidents involving radioactive materials along DOE
transportation corridors and routes.
