Our Fire department and haz mat team have been responding to meth labs, providing
site assessment, decon of suspects, chemical compatibility, classification of unknowns.

This is a fairly new task for us and I was wondering how many other fire dept. haz mat teams are conducting these operations.
Specifically looking for s.o.p./f.o.g. and the level of involvement at these incidents.

We have had about about 40 of these labs in our area so far this year. In searching the web it is very apparent that this is a huge problem nationally, but I have only so far found via the web a couple of haz mat teams that respond to drug labs routinely. If you have any information please contact me at
