Today we are highlighting the responders from Santo, TX as our newest HAZMATTERS. This volunteer municipal team is located in the county of Palo Pinto, and serves a population of close to 12,000. Through the responders run area, lies 16 miles of I-20 which is a hazardous material cargo route for the southern US.
This special operations section of Santos Fire trains regularly through interdepartmental trainings, regional trainings, and even participates in state wide training. This ensures that the team will always be ready to go at a moments notice. This division is based out of station number 1 and utilizes a 2006 Ford 6500 walk around heavy rescue truck. Some of the hazmat gear on board consists of: Specialized PPE, large spill containment supplies, ruptured/leaking container mitigation equipment, and of course detection equipment.
This edition of HAZMATTERS is brought to you by HAZSIM. Interested in taking your training to the next level? HAZSIM will take you there.
HazSim Pro training system has been used to train across the U.S since 2011. Trainers in HazMat and Confined Space realized that ‘tapping the student on the shoulder’ was NOT effective training. This system uses NO hazardous materials and although may not look exactly like your front line meter, shows the important data which the all students needs to learn to ‘react’ to.
