SCBA Refresher & Respiratory Protection Plan Review
To meet BLS Compliance, this year’s SCBA and Respiratory Protection Plan Review will consist of employees reviewing the department’s SCBA Refresher & Respiratory Protection Plan Review PowerPoint presentation with the successful completion of an online test. We have eliminated the SCBA confidence course as part of the mandatory training as it is not required by the standard. There is a practical evolution to don and doff the SCBA which will be done live during Fit Testing & Gear Check.
Under the Federal Clean Water Act, Scarborough has a permit that allows for stormwater to be directed to water bodies in the community, provided that specific steps are taken to minimize pollution. This permit is administered by Maine DEP and is referred to as the Maine Pollution Detection and Elimination System (MPDES) MS4 permit. Implementation of these steps is mandatory as a regulated municipality. Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System, or MS4, means a stormwater conveyance that is separated from sanitary sewer systems. The storm sewer system includes roads, curbs and gutters, ditches, storm drains, outfalls, and pipes connecting these features. This training manual is to be used in conjunction with the Operations & Maintenance Procedures guide, see guide for more details.
