About this creation
The body offers plenty of space for the bulky Hazmat equipment.
The compartment directly behind the cab contains 60 min air tanks and an on board air compressor.

Rear of the trailer shows another scene lighting device, steps to the top of the trailer, and a compartment for 55-gallon drums used to dispose of hazardous chemicals.

Hazardous Materials Company 1 is comprised of three units: Hazmat 1 (Right), Hazmat 1a (middle), and Mobile Lab 1 (left).
The second piece to Hazardous Materials Company 1 has arrived from Pierce MFG! With the large amount of equipment that the Hazardous Materials Team carries, this apparatus was purchased in August 2017. This particular vehicle now hauls all the bulky Level A and B suits and the decontamination equipment that were previously stored in Mobile Lab 1 (former Decon 1). In addition, this rig also has containment vessels and absorbent for many chemicals. The compartments on top of the trailer provide extra space for long tools that would not fit in the transverse compartments. Rooftop access is achieved by a ladder stored on top of the trailer. This apparatus is a special call apparatus for large scale incidents or can be pressed into service if the need arises.
