Hazmat equipment is housed in the semi and trailer commonly known as the HazMat Truck and a Technical Rescue trailer. The semi-trailer does not just store equipment and materials.
It is set up to be a full command center in the event of a major hazardous material situation in north central Iowa. Generators, phones, fax machines, decontamination showers, flood lights, monitors of all kinds, is just a sampling of some of the state-of-the-art, high-tech equipment available to all public safety agencies in the ten counties covered by the Commission.
In addition, the Department and Commission have a Ranger to aid in getting to off road locations.
