RALEIGH - New tractor for Haz-Mat 2, a 2014 M2-112 Freightliner, purchased by North Carolina Emergency Management. It replaces a 1995 International tractor that pulls a 1995 Hackney trailer. The unit is housed at Station 27, operated by Engine 27, and is part of the equipment assigned to North Carolina Regional Response Team 4. The city will retain the current vehicle as a prime mover for the RRT 4 mass-casualty/non-ambulatory decon trailer. The new truck can also be loaned to other RRT teams, if they have units undergoing extended repairs.
