Hazmat 105 is the only special operations rig that is staffed 24/7. Key areas that this rig was designed to protect include the Port of Castle Beach, multiple refineries, industrial areas, and several metal/plastic manufacturers.
About this creation
The front of the cab was inspired by James K.
Hazmat 105 is a large rig that carries plenty of equipment. The forward half of the rig contains the mobile lab as well as the command center, while the rear of the rig stores all the necessary equipment.
All the doors can open! The slide-out was integrated after LAcoFD members saw Castle Beach Fire Departmentís Hazmat 1.
Closer look at the storage capacity of the rig.
Rear of the apparatus
Rear compartment opens for even more storage!
Top contains long tools. You can also see the compressor as well as a large drum for placing hazardous waste.
Compartments open for long tools such as brooms, shovels, etc.
Officerís side of the apparatus shows the side access door to the command center and mobile lab.
Equipment stored in this side of the apparatus include non-sparking extraction equipment, meters, and the various suits!
Storage was one of the biggest concerns of the department, but SVI made everything the department asked for!
Close up of the side access door into the command center with the slide out deployed shows the vast amount of space available to crews!
Hazmat 105 responds out of Station 105 alongside Engine 105, Truck 105, and Battalion 1.
The NightScan can illuminate even the darkest scene!

Local departments participated in a joint hazmat drill for a mass casualty hazmat incident!
Los Angelego County Fire Department has taken delivery of this 2018 Seagrave/SVI heavy duty rescue to serve as Hazmat 105. Unlike other special operations rigs, this rig is staffed 24/7 by 4 highly trained individuals due to its central location in the county. Hazmat 105 features a mobile lab and a command center in addition to the equipment for identifying, containing, and removing of hazardous materials.
