Abstract
In November 1996, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a health hazard evaluation (HHE) request from the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 146 on behalf of the Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) and Perry Township Fire Department (PTFD) personnel who were exposed to chemicals or injured during and after fire suppression activities at UCR, Incorporated, a chemical warehouse located in Indianapolis, Indiana. NIOSH was asked to review the circumstances surrounding the fire, evaluate the overall incident command system, and investigate chemical exposures and injuries experienced by fire fighters.
