In the wake of recent hurricanes and earthquakes, Southern Arizona first responders are learning how to prepare for the medical impacts of natural disasters.

The University of Arizona Emergency and Medicine Research Center is leading hazmat training sessions this week for several fire departments across the Tucson area.

The hazmat training continues through Wednesday at the Tucson Fire Department headquarters downtown.
