04/02/12 138 W, 1 I - + 5 - 4 Haz-Mat 2 Moved to Station 27

The Raleigh Fire Department has affected some changes to its hazardous materials team effective yesterday, April 1. Notable is the moving of Haz-Mat 2 from Station 15 to Station 27. Their respective crews also swapped station. The lower call volume will help the engine company members with time requirements for their haz-mat duties.

Haz-Mat 2 is one of two tractor-drawn haz-mat trucks operated by the city. The 1995 International/Hackney is operated as part of North Carolina Haz-Mat Regional Response Team 4.

The units are Haz-Mat 1 at Station 2 (2006 Freightliner/Hackney), SR1 at Station 2 (1991 Simon-Duplex/E-One, haz-mat support), SR2 at Station 8 (2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty plus cargo trailers, air monitoring/recon), and SR3 at Station 22 (2005 Ford F-550 prime mover plus fifth-wheel decon trailer). Memo to self: update my web pages. See a few more photos from Lee Wilson.
