Hazardous Materials CBRNE : First Responders Handbook
Nordic collaboration in accordance with the Haga Declaration.
Local and national representatives from the fire & rescue service,
emergency medical services (EMS), and the police in Sweden and
Norway cooperated on producing the handbook.
The handbook is intended for use by the first responders of the
emergency services from the moment they receive an alarm up to the
first 30 minutes on scene at an incident.
The handbook is envisaged to function as a checklist and
decision-support for personnel with existing knowledge of
emergency response operations.
As no two incidents are alike it is impossible to set an exact
order of work, the incident itself determines the order of work.
