This short presentation is geared at providing guidance to those tasked with purchasing new devices or implementing new technologies into hazmat response teams. All too often, purchases are made without careful consideration to the long term impacts of an item, idea, or program. The presentation offers a systematic approach to decision making, which may help avoid making a commitment based on fancy features instead of tangible and well thought out benefits.
