We have been working with the NCEC for many years as media partners to their annual Hazmat conference and this new partnership will provide the Hazmat Academy with an extended reach through our print magazines and websites.’
Ed Sullivan, Hazmat Academy Manager, said: ‘NCEC has been supporting Category 1 response organisations since 1973. Our mission is to ensure that anyone responding to incidents involving hazardous materials can do so safely, effectively, competently and confidently. We are delighted to be partnering with MDM Publishing, media leaders in the fire and safety industry, as the relationship will enable us to reach many more responders and support them with their hazmat training requirements.’
