distances (Table 1). Does not contain training information -- you will already need to be familiar with the ERG.
Whether you are looking for a fast, accurate decoder for placards you see in the field or you are trying to quiz yourself so you know the values cold off the top of your head, this simple app is for you.
With a placard in front of you, tap the colored squares to dial in the values you see and then press Decode to get the hazard details. Or, press and hold a square to see a cheatsheet on the values for that particular hazard class.
You'll never need to guess about a hazmat placard again. It's that simple!
If you are just looking for a fast, accurate tool for hazards identification based on the NFPA safety diamond or you are trying to quiz yourself till you’ve memorized the hazard diamond values cold, you may want to look at our Hazmat Placards app.
BUT, if you also want to have a record of where specific hazards are found, this is the app for you.
With a placard in front of you, tap the colored squares on the image of the NFPA hazard diamond to dial in the values for each section and then press Decode to get the hazard details. (Or, just press and hold a square to see a cheatsheet on the values for that particular hazard category.)
If this is a placard you want to be able to locate again later, press Save, use the Map button to record the current location (or adjust it if you aren’t right in front of the placard), and save the placard for later reference.
If you ever need to see where placards are near you or get an overview of where several hazmat diamonds are in relationship to one another, use the My Placards button to pull up a list of all the placards you’ve recorded. Press Show All and see the placards displayed against a map. Zoom in or out to see precise locations or get the big picture.
Powerful search capabilities will help you quickly find information by matching just part of the UN/NA number or material name. Cargo Decoder also supports Voice Search to make searches even faster.
Protective distance information,toxic inhalation hazards, and ERG2012 reference pages are just a touch away for emergency responders and HazMat personnel. A simple swipe quickly moves you to the information you need.
Cargo Decoder is my way to give back to the first responders who are always there for us. Cargo Decoder for Android will always be free and will never contain ads. Cargo Decoder uses no network bandwidth so information will always be available even if the cell network is not.
Cargo Decoder runs on just about every device running Android version 2.2 and later.
Cargo Decoder now supports sharing of material details. Select a material and touch the Share icon. Create a notebook of materials found using Evernote (Evernote can add GPS information too). Share information to others via email or text messaging. Configure the information about the material you want to share in Settings. Important: Sharing with Facebook does not work even though Facebook adds itself to the sharing list. Facebook says the behavior is "by design"(https://developers.facebook.com/bugs/332619626816423)
If you like Cargo Decoder, please consider supporting it by purchasing the Cargo Decoder Plus Upgrade Key. Installing the Cargo Decoder Plus Upgrade Key unlocks special features added to say “Thank you!” to our supporters.
Cargo Decoder Plus features include:
* A unique view of all materials that correspond to a Guide page. This view will be useful if you see a placard or Guide number and want to know what material it might be.
* Access to both ERG2012 and ERG2008 reference pages.
Users who are not yet supporters can also use Plus features but will be periodically asked to consider become a Cargo Decoder supporter.
Key Program Features
Extensive Chemical Database: CAMEO Chemicals uses a chemical database, which contains response recommendations for thousands of chemicals. Find a chemical of interest by searching on a name, identification number, or other search criteria.
Critical Response Information: Chemical datasheets provide physical properties, health hazards, information about air and water hazards, and recommendations for firefighting, first aid, and spill response. UN/NA datasheets provide response information from the Emergency Response Guidebook and shipping information from the Hazmat Table (49 CFR 172.101).
Chemical Reactivity: This tool predicts what hazards could arise if chemicals were to mix.
Online and Standalone Versions: Use the CAMEO Chemicals site to get quick, convenient access to all of the response datasheets and the reactivity prediction tool. All of the same functionality is also included in a standalone version that you can download and run from your own computer so that you don't have to rely on an Internet connection to get your response information.
CAMEO Chemicals was developed by NOAA in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard. The Web site is maintained by NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration.
Not affiliated with any government agency.

Because firefighters are often the first responders to people in critical conditions, firefighters may provide many other valuable services to the community they serve, such as:
Emergency medical services, as technicians or as licensed paramedics, staffing ambulances;
Defensive Hazardous materials mitigation (HAZMAT);
Community disaster support.
Fire risk assessments
There are specialized area of fire and rescue operations that are considered special operations. These areas may require schools and classes to be attended for subject specific training.

Regrettably, drugs have become the most prominent coping mechanism that people use to deal with life’s problems. There are many reasons why people begin using drugs. They are looking for a way out – an escape – a way to forget life for just a little while.
Methamphetamine use has grown to alarming rates in the United States with over 25 percent of the population addicted to this drug. Twenty-three percent of high school seniors use marijuana on a regular basis. Forty-three percent of adults report having a problem with alcohol.
The statistics also reveal that drug use, including alcohol and cigarettes, is beginning earlier in life. Children are experimenting with drugs as young as 10 years old, and many middle schoolers have already had their first taste of alcohol by seventh grade.
