Hazmat teams are responsible for cleaning up hazardous materials. Dressed in body-covering suits with hoods and visors, they protect us from liquids or gases that are harmful to people or the environment. Learn about the training, techniques, and equipment these brave men and women use, as well as when the first hazmat teams were formed and who the individuals that work on a hazmat team are. Different, real-life examples of actual hazmat clean-up missions are also discussed. This book will allow students to determine a central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to supporting ideas; provide an objective summary of the text.
