Congrat's on your effort to seek info on this very dangerous topic. It's something EVERY OFFICER & FIREFIGHTER SHOULD BE AWARE OF!!!!!! It's a lot more dangerous than most realize. The scary thing is it's out there more than we know or realize. And the more we're aware of , what to look for and what this can do to us the better off we all are.
I most recently help set up this training at our county fire school. The people to contact are the state or local drug task force and see if they offer an awareness training session for firefighters. They should be able to help you. You'll learn a lot from a few hours of training.
If you do connect someone who can help you and can set up a training session, offer your local mutual aid fire departments the opportunity to participate. The more that are aware of this topic the better.
I have some things I can e-mail you for downloading and printing out. I'll send them to you if you e-mail me at " firstname.lastname@example.org " in subject write "training download request".
Good luck in your quest. Stay safe, train often and share knowledge.
I have some info that you might be able to use.
It some really nasty stuff and every firefighter should be aware of the dangers.
Also contact your local PD or Fire Investigator and ask if the have any classes you and your fd can attend.
