Fire Training Students Complete Hazmat Training

Highlands High School Fire Service Training students recently completed Hazmat Training at the Allegheny County Fire Academy with instructor Mike Krzeminski. The students were challenged with reading placards and containers to determine the product in safe simulations. In doing so, they supported and used a number of basic science ideas - specific gravity, vapor density, and physical state to determine how they can protect themselves and the community. "This is a fine group of students, and they are excellent delegates from Highlands," said Krzeminski.
