The NFPA 472 Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents identifies the minimum competence for a responder at the first level of progression.
A person certified at the Hazardous Material Awareness level will have demonstrated competency in the necessary knowledge and skills, to recognize the presence of a hazardous material or WMD, protect themselves, call for trained personnel and secure the incident.
