HAZ MAT Apparatus

HazMat (Hazardous Materials) – in the event of a chemical or dangerous toxin emergencies, or a bomb threat, a specialized vehicle, typically called a Haz Mat – or hazardous materials apparatus will be put into use. Today, even smaller departments operate haz mat rigs – although some cities utilize their police departments for this function. These rigs are supplied with the command, support, and mitigation equipment required to manage situations that pose a hazard to the general public.
