HazMat Medical Response Course

The HazMat Medical Response (HMR) course was jointly organised by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPR), and the Hong Kong Association for Conflict and Catastrophe Medicine on 26 & 27 September 2017. The 2-day course was designed for emergency responders including physicians, nurses, paramedics and EMS workers such as the police and fire fighters, who may be required to manage hazardous materials incidents.


The training course took participants through both theory and practical sessions including the don and doff of personal protective equipment, receiving of contaminated patients at hospitals, decontamination area set-up, assessment of incidence scenes, etc. The course ended with a simulation exercise of the set up of hazardous zones and the coordination of hazardous materials incidents.


The course was successfully held with 59 trainees in attendance.
