I think  it's important to differentiate between the types of  responders.

I agree 100% Al and in fact in the message that was copied on your  response 
I tried to do so without as much depth as you did in terms of the "in  plant" 
What Health Department were you referring to and is this course material  
that you speak of available for review? I assume from your E-Mail address that  
it was the Washington State DOH?
The real issue is one of how many do we train, you stated that you  
department trained about 1,200 and would train about another 300 in your program  but 
what percentage are those 1,500 overall in the area you trained? Was it just  a 
City or was it the whole state? Also what specific "First Responder  
Disciplines" was the target audience for this course? Did you hit all 10 or only  the 
"traditional First Responders" as many such programs tend to do?
I'd be very interested in looking at your training materials for First  
Responders if you can share same, feel free to contact off list if you'd  like.
