Hazardous Materials Team (HAZMAT)

The Williamson Valley-Bagdad Fire District is striving to place a regional Western Yavapai County HAZMAT team into operation in late 2015. Currently, there is a limited HAZMAT response capability out of station 95 in Bagdad.

The WVBFD HAZMAT Team responds to the accidental or intentional release of dangerous biological, chemical or nuclear agents into the environment. Typically, the team responds to spills of liquid and gaseous agents resulting from container failure, transportation accidents or human error, and most frequently deals with fuel spills and propane gas leaks.
