04/10/13 153 W, 1 I - + 8 - 3 SR 2 > Haz-Mat 3

Effective at 8:00 p.m. today, April 10, the haz-mat support unit SR 2 will be renamed Haz-Mat 3. Previously utilized as a recon/air-monitoring unit, it enters service today as a primary haz-mat resource. The 2010 Ford F-350/Knapheide light truck is staffed by Engine 8 and joins Haz-Mat 1 at Station 2 and Haz-Mat 2 at Station 27. Those are tractor-drawn rigs, which will now run fewer calls on gas leaks as the city has been divided into thirds for commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential buildings. They'll also be added on full haz-mat responses with Haz-Mat 1, Haz-Mat 2, the decon unit SR 3 (staffed by Ladder 5), the haz-mat Battalion Chief, plus the first due engine, the air truck, one Battalion Chief, and the Division Chief. Got that? Any errors? Anyway, that's the gist of why you'll hear Haz-Mat 3 on the radio starting today. Mr. Blogger will work on updating his web pages and maps.

Hey Mr. Blogger….... Maybe FIRST Hazmat 3 response on April 16, 2013 at 0436 hours to Crestgate Terrace, for an odor of gas in the bedroom ??????? One for the next history book….....
