Program Type(s):

Profile:

  • Although the department has been responding to incidents involving chemicals from the beginning, the latest technology is the Hazardous Incident Team (H.I.T.). The team is a group of uniquely trained firefighters using a specialized vehicle with state-of-the-art technology, equipment and protective clothing designed specifically for such incidents. The H.I.T. team responds to any suspected chemical leak--or unknown leak of any sort--and to transportation accidents involving the shipment of chemicals or toxic substances, and all fires where toxic chemicals are suspected. Examples of a fire that would require the use of the H.I.T. team would be one in a paint factory or an auto body shop where chemicals typically would be part of the inventory.
