Hazardous Material Emergency Equipment
All firefighters are trained and state certified to the Hazardous Materials Operations level. Each first-out apparatus carries an air monitor for detection of flammable and toxic atmospheres and basic colorimetric paper for acids and bases. Each unit also carries basic decontamination equipment and absorbent materials.
In addition to the equipment carried by each apparatus, the comprehensive resources of the organization and County Emergency managers are available. These include water tankers, water tankers with foam capabilities, boats and aerial vehicles. Through an automatic aid agreement with KCFD an additional foam truck, technical rescue units, HazMat response units, and technicians and specialists are available.
