Hazmat Team

The Miami County Hazardous Materials Response Team is a multi-agency response team made up of trained members who are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Fourteen (14) of the nineteen (19) team members are trained to the Hazardous Materials Technician level and the remaining are at the Hazardous Materials Operations level. All members of the response team are required to maintain their level of certification through a combination of regular in-house training, contract classes, exercises and drills. Due to its dangerous nature, team members volunteer for the assignment. This ability requires many years of training, certification and diligence not found elsewhere.

The Hazmat Team’s primary mission is to respond to the release of hazardous materials and mitigate the effects of the release by working with local responders, state officials, the affected party and private contractors. To accomplish these goals, the team is equipped and has training with specialized detection and monitoring equipment for the detection of chemicals, toxic environments, radiological materials, gas monitoring and others.

The goals of the Miami County Hazardous Materials Response Team are to preserve life, stabilize the scene and protect public and private properties.

The Miami County Hazardous Material Response Team is actively involved in the Local Emergency Planning Committee and its efforts on behalf all Miami County residents.
