The assignment constist of 4 questions. All questions are to be answered completely in 200 words and be specific with the answers.


Discuss an incident (fire, spill, explosion, etc) that you have experienced (or research one on the Internet, professional journal, or scientific magazine article) that involved a toxic material(s) and required mitigation. The following items must be addressed:



A)  Describe the incident and identify the toxic material(s) involved;

B)  Discuss the chemical interactions of the material(s) involved in this incident or toxic properties relevant to the incident;

C)  Discuss the mitigation required or implemented.

Response should be 200 words in length, all of the questions answered (Be specific), and all sources cited and referenced.



Question 2

  Why are active on-duty firefighters likely to experience the adverse health effects from inhaling 300 ppm of carbon monoxide faster than nonactive off-duty firefighters who inhale the same concentration of the same substance?  Explain your answer using the chemicals/process involved.

Response should be 200 words in length, all of the questions answered (Be specific), and all sources cited and referenced.



Question 3

 
Give some examples of the types of hazardous chemicals, specifically oxidizers, stored in homes (such as those stored under counters and sinks, in garages/basements and in pump houses/sheds).  Discuss the following:



A)  What problems and dangerous situations can result from the improper storage and use (i.e., mixing them together, etc.) of these chemicals?  Describe potential hazardous material interactions.



B)  What government agency and statutes/regulation(s) govern for the labeling and registration of these hazardous household products?

Response should be 200 words in length, all of the questions answered (Be specific), and all sources cited and referenced.



Question 4

 
Why do firefighters recommend the use of a deluging volume of water when extinguishing an oxidizer-supported fire? What may happen to a large (i.e., 30-50lb) container of trichloro-s-triazinetrione, or calcium hypochlorite, if it is left to sit in the water and muck remaining in a building after fire fighting efforts have ended, but clean-up will not begin for several days? The assumption here is that the plastic container has been compromised in some way by the heat of the fire and possibly creating cracks in the base or sides.

Response should be 200 words in length, all of the questions answered (Be specific), and all sources cited and referenced
