  • looking for a gag on haz mat

    i remember for a while there was a hazmat joke floating around this forum and others on how to tell what the hazards is by the actions of the leo I'm wanting to pass it around my emt class since we have to go over the dot standards

    i think one exapmle is like

    car running and officer standing no hazard.

    if any one knows where to find this let me know

    The standing joke around home was:

    If the canary yellow stripe (down the pant leg of RCMP officers) is vertical, all is good. If the canary yellow strip is horizontal ...

      Our standing joke is similar to the above except the PD officer is known as a "blue canary".

        We refer to the stripe on the pants leg of cops as the Copometer. If it's upright, things are good. If it's horizontal, things are bad.

        We also joke that if you arrive on scene and see the trooper, then you know the substance is not flammable nor corrosive because you can be sure he's already walked in it and put flares out.

          Also something along the lines of...You can tell wind direction from the powder coming off the powdered donut. I forget how it was actually worded, though.

            Here's one. The best tool a cop can use to maintain a safe distance is a powdered doughnut. If the officer can hold the doughnut at arms length and view the whole scene through the doughnut hole, he is a safe distance away.

            You can buy a pack of 6 miniature training aids at the gas station for $1.99.

            Why powdered doughnuts you ask? So the officer can tell which way the wind is blowing!

                Have the guys look up "dihydrogen monoxide" in the NAERG...
                It will keep them occupied for a while....

                  lol...did that with one of our instructors. He started looking for it...then, after about 10 seconds, gave me a rather annoyed look and moved on.

                      THis is one of the Items I teach to New Haz Mat Techs

                      COP-O-LOGICAL APPROACH TO HAZMAT




                      OBSERVATION DEDUCTION

                      1. Cop still standing Non-toxic
                      2. Cop car still running Not oxygen deficient
                      3. Paint still on cop car Non-corrosive
                      4. Cop igniting road flares Non-flammable
                      5. Cop unconscious Backup 50 feet upwind and erect a safety barrier

                        I've use a similar training scenario for detecting / identifying haz-mats and refer to it as "The presence of cop-ological indicators."

                          I was told the "rule of thumb for hazmat scenes" was this:As your rig approaches the scene,the officer will hold out his thumb at arm's length.If he can see any part of the scene around the thumb from that distance,the rig is too close and much be repositioned for safety.
