Hazardous Materials (HazMat)

The objective of the Regional Hazardous Materials (HazMat) Working Group is to enhance overall response effectiveness for all hazardous materials incidents within the North Central Texas Region. Through regular meetings, subject matter experts (primarily HazMat coordinators) evaluate discipline specific information, unit capability, regional coverage, and projects. By providing recommendations to both the Urban Area Working Group and the Regional Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee, the Regional HazMat Working Group is able to maximize Homeland Security funding opportunities to address capability gaps.

These subject matter experts continue to evaluate and categorize unit capabilities, program request evaluations, and to create regional training opportunities to better train and equip our first responders with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to enhance HazMat response capabilities in this region and beyond. The Regional HazMat Working Group coordinates with regional, state, and federal agencies to address HazMat aspects of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) events.
