The TMFMD is the regional hazardous materials response team for Northern Arizona. We are also registered nationally, which means we can respond to crises around the country, such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks. Our team is composed of 19 hazardous materials technicians. Each technician trains thoroughly through accredited courses, mock incidences, and frequent review sessions. We have a 76′ long semi that serves as our hazardous materials response vehicle. The tractor is our command vehicle that we can use on any type of incident and the trailer is used solely for Haz-Mat response.
We respond to a variety of calls ranging from a suspicious odor in the air, to possible methamphetamine labs, to motor vehicle accidents that involve hazardous materials. We are constantly training to stay proficient in our job and to stay updated on new techniques and equipment in order to better serve our customers.
