Emergency Response Training Levels
There are 5 different emergency response levels, all with their own training, hazards, and types of response.
Emergency Response Level 1 Awareness:
A level 1 emergency is a situation where hazardous materials can be contained, extinguished, or abated using immediately available resources. The Level 1 incident has little risk to the environment and public health when cleanup or containment is performed.
