Hazardous materials are a daily part of our lives. The Fire
Department employs a Hazardous Materials Specialist to enforce
hazardous materials life safety requirements, respond to hazardous
materials incidents, and provide expertise to the public.
All of our firefighters have received extensive training in
handling hazardous materials incidents. This training
handles the emergency response and initial mitigation of hazardous
materials incidents. Fire Fighters receive annual training
to refresh skills in hazardous materials.
The Department is an active participant with the Western Wayne
County Fire Department Mutual Aid Associationís Hazardous Incident
Response Team, which is made up of members representing 21
communities in Oakland and Wayne counties.
