This clip demonstrates a better (but not perfect) approach to a hazmat incident. It is from the very good 1986 video, First On the Scene, produced by the Chemical Manufacturer’s Association (CMA) for training first responders to the scene of hazardous materials incidents. This video was widely used in early Hazwoper training classes. A second posted clip, HazMat Response doing it wrong 1986, shows the same incident approached with little regard for the hazardous materials

Nowadays if a cop tells you to stay and you sneak around his back you get knocked the fuck out with a taser…

UN 1830 8 Sulfuric acid with more than 51 percent acid.

Are you even allowed to carry a class 3 and a class 8 together anymore?

Tyler Cannon says:

We watched this on the last night of Hazmat Awareness, which was Thursday night.

wildwasser says:

the police stopped the truck beside the fire hydrant, if it burns they can't get to the hydrant. police car should have backed off to a safer distance, and not allowed him to open the truck.

not perfect but much better than "doing it wrong"
