This section deals with major threats involving dangerous goods, such as some chemicals. The Bathurst Fire department is part of the Bathurst Area Hazmat Department which consists of 9 area fire departments. There are 5 firemen in the Bathurst detachment that are trained to work in the Hazmat section. These firemen need to know how to deal with situations where different dangerous goods may cause a threat to public safety.
We have one hazmat vehicle with a 12 kW Onan diesel generator supplying eight 500-watt scenic lights and four 1,500-watt telescopic lights.
