Register by noon on June 12
Please join us for the MHOA June 15th Quarterly Meeting!
Date & Time: June 15, 2023, 10am to 12pm
Location: Northern Essex Community College (NECC) - Haverhill Campus, Hartleb Technology Center, College Ave, Haverhill
Local public health staff can be called upon to help manage hazardous materials incidents in their communities. It could be as minor as directing a resident to safe mercury thermometer disposal options, or a major chemical or drug exposure involving responders from multiple state and local agencies. Hear from some of those agencies, and from experienced local public health colleagues. They’ll share best practices for navigating hazardous materials response when you’re not the first responder, but you'll inevitably become involved.
At the end of this training program, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the different types of hazardous materials they may encounter in the field.
- Identify appropriate hazardous materials responding agencies and partners
- Explain local public health roles in hazardous materials response
Lunch will follow the program. Chicken, beef and vegetable kabobs will be served with rice and vegetables.
