Who We Are
Copyright © 2017 Emergency Response Solutions

A Commitment to Safety

Specialized Professional Services, Inc. has been enhanced by the addition of former leaders of a large chemical producer, a class 1 railroad, and of public safety agencies.  SPSI’s staff now includes former managers and team leaders from the DuPont & Chemours Emergency Response Solutions Team, a former Senior Hazmat Manager from CSX Transportation, and a distinguished Chief officer from the City of Pittsburgh, County of Allegheny, and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.  Each of these distinguished individuals bring a wealth of expertise, experience, perspective, and professional recommendations during emergency events and in support of training, planning, and non-emergency special projects.

Historical

DuPont, an industrial leader in safety, developed DuPont Emergency Response Solutions™ training to deliver effective emergency response education to help First Responders prepare for chemical, biological, and radiation incidents with a focus on keeping these emergency professionals safe in the process.  We are now SPSI Emergency Response Solutions. This practical, experienced-based approach to training is provided through seminars and hands-on simulations. All training is designed and delivered by certified SPSI Emergency Responders.

A Commitment to Safety 

Through our history and culture, we are dedicated to delivering solutions to make our world safer, more secure, and more comfortable.  Safety is a defining part of our culture. During our many years of response, we have handled some of the most hazardous materials known to the chemical industry (hydrogen cyanide, chlorine, oleum, and hydrogen fluoride) with excellent safety performance.  For over 31 years of emergency response, our emergency response teams have responded to incidents without a single injury or exposure.

Experienced Emergency Response Training

The SPSI training contains unique props and tools, and is taught by certified instructors with over 300 cumulative years of response experience. Additionally, our courses have been reviewed and accredited by emergency response professionals and organizations such as the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (Pro Board) and The International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC).  All of our courses include practical hands-on exercises that allow the students to demonstrate competency in a safe, simulated emergency environment using actual response tools and equipment.  Our training curriculum is geared to today’s environment. First Responder students from public or private sector, military, federal, state or local emergency management agencies receive training that is essential to handle biological, nuclear, incendiary, chemical, or explosive incidents. Courses meet or exceed OSHA, NFPA and EPA Guidelines.

Flexible and Customized Training 

The SPSI Emergency Response Solutions™ training team will bring these seminars to your location — eliminating travel expense and lost work time, while allowing your team to train together. Training can be scheduled to fit your situation, giving flexibility for "off-hours" learning. We can combine and focus specific topics to help your organization achieve individual training objectives. Our core safety values are woven into every course with emphasis on keeping responders safe. Hands-on work can be done at your location using all the latest equipment and addressing a variety of response situations. We have fully-equipped training trucks that bring a full array of training materials to your location for a variety of realistic simulations.

Response Experienced and Certified Trainers

The training is created and staffed by SPSI certified response team members. When not responding to HAZMAT calls, these professionals instruct classes. The learning is strengthened by instructors sharing their own experiences, as well as demonstrating methods for operating safely in hazardous situations. Many of the SPSI instructors are NFPA Tier I and II certified. Many of our instructors also volunteer their time to their community fire and emergency departments.
