The Baltimore Washington Chapter First Responder Assistance Training program consists of Health Physicists who reside in the MD, DC, and VA region who have volunteered their time to train first responders in response techniques for radioactive materials response. Certain volunteers are designated as Rovers meaning they will respond to wherever they are needed. All the Health Physicists have had training in emergency response and continue to receive the most up to date training available to teach first responders techniques necessary to respond to incidents involving radioactive materials and minimizing exposure to any radioactive materials. The Health Physicists involved will design a training program to meet your needs.

Please contact the coordinator of the First Responder Assistance Team if you are interested in volunteering or to request more information.
