I've been using Hazmat Toolkit by Pocket Mobility for a while now, and it is similar but different. I wish this tool had support for more chemicals; 390 is good but not enough for all situations.

This is the kind of thing that should be included in all FR kits somehow.
Double kudos on the freeness!

The company I work for offers a FR kit for use with our Command Vehicles that includes Jane's BioChem Handbook, which is realy what should be digitized for use in these situations, if not something similar.

This is a great start, I'm not knocking it. The only problem is that in these situations you can't settle for half or partial measures.

Sounds good. Now time for an IT team to do all the conversion from the FEMA HazMat database. A lot of work to say the least but a good use of GB-sized memory cards. I'm sure there is Federal grant money out there somewhere for a project like this.
