JBSA (TX) Hazmat Team Prepares New Apparatus

The Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston is getting a new hazmat apparatus ready for action, reports DVIDS.

The 30-foot apparatus has carrying capacity, four air tanks for refilling bottles used for breathing air, a 15-foot light mast that can provide 6,000 watts of light, and a generator that can put out 25,000 watts of power.

The new hazmat apparatus, purchased in an effort to consolidate hazmat services across JBSA and minimize resources, will save the base the high maintenance fees and space utilized by duplicate equipment
