 HAZ/MAT Team
 

 

 

 The West Georgia Regional Haz/Mat Team was established in 1995 to assist the Fire Departments of Bremen, Carroll County, Carrollton, Haralson County, Heard County, Newnan, and Tallapoosa plus any area that the Georgia Mutual Aid Group or Federal Government may request assistance in the mitigation of incidents involving hazardous materials including, fuels, chemicals, radiological materials, biological agents, and weapons of mass destruction.

The mission of our emergency response team is not for clean up, removal, or storage of hazardous materials, but rather to restore a stable environment, care for the injured, protect life, property and the environment.

The team consists of members from each of the Fire Departments listed above, which provides approximately 150 personnel for the team. The team is equipped with a tractor drawn trailer including a command module, level A Haz/Mat Entry suits, tools, self contained breathing apparatus, monitoring/metering equipment, decontamination equipment, power generator, light tower, computer equipment, chemical library and communications equipment.

The response team is capable of detection and identification of chemicals including solids, liquids, gases, biological, radiological, nerve gases, mustard gases and blistering agents.
