HAZARDOUS MATERIALS RESPONSE TEAM4040 Losee Road
North Las Vegas, Nevada 89030
Currently, the Hazardous Material (Haz Mat) “team” is still in the development phase. The Haz Mat Development Team is in the process of developing the program. Even though our department does not have an operational team, hazardous material incidents still occur within our City. Hazardous materials are transported, developed and used daily in our city.
The vision of the North Las Vegas Fire Department Hazardous Materials Development Committee is to develop, implement, and maintain a state of the art hazardous materials response program. Hazardous Material incidents can involve chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive incidents. The program committee is currently developing a formalized response program, providing Operations and Technician Level training, developing model procedures for effective identification and mitigation, specifying and purchasing the required equipment and developing the associated budget.
Hazardous material responses are currently handled with a joint response between the North Las Vegas, Las Vegas and Clark County Fire Departments following our interlocal automatic aid response program.
