Ammonia is one of the highest volume chemicals produced in the United States.

With the current problem of theft of ammonia for drug production, this class will familiarize you with nurse tanks, transport containers and storage facilities where releases might occur. Other topics include chemical and physical properties, hazard and risk assessment, public protection options, and emergency response options to safely mitigate an anhydrous ammonia incident.
