The Rochester (MN) Fire Department (RFD) recently completed its quarterly hazmat drill with its new hazardous materials apparatus—Truck 42, which features different suits, leak plugs, and specialized technology, reports

However, although Truck 42 is new, much of its equipment has been around for some time. So training is imperative to get a feel for the apparatus.

RFD has a chemical assessment team trained to respond to hazmat situations across 11 counties in southeast Minnesota. The department also has classroom training sessions each month regarding how to handle the toxic chemicals.
