All MRFA members of this team are certified at the Hazardous Materials Specialist level. The team members train monthly as a regional team as well as numerous times throughout the year with specialty classes to include Hazardous Materials Identification, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Nuclear and Biological training. All other companies throughout MRFA are trained to the Hazardous Material First Responder / Decontamination level. This training is provided through the Training Division and instruction given by the members of the Haz-Mat team.
