    Talking Looking for Specs on a Hazmat rig

    Hey All,

    I am looking for specs & pictures of compartments of stand alone Haz Mat rigs. We are in the process of designing a rig and would like to see what everyone else has.

    Looking at the Bigger centres for some help, it would be a huge help. If you could drop me a name,phone number or email so I can get a hold of you that would be greatly appreciated.

    We would like to do this right the first time.

    Cheers

    FireFighter kid,

    You have an AWESOME looking rig. I have one at my private company, but nothing like that.

    As to the original question, I will try and get you some pics tomorrow.

    Thanks turbo1, nice rig I was wondering what Vancouver had for HazMat Truck. Do you guys run alot of HazMat? What types? Right now we run alot of Natural Gas, odd smells, etc. Had a few roll overs with Chemicals, nothing really bad. Did alot of white powder calls after 9/11, and we have done a few meth calls that turn out to be nothing.

    Thanks again,

    We ran about 450 hazmat calls last year(most routine stuff). Your usual things propane, natural gas, smells, etc... but meth labs have moved up the ladder big time recently. Had a run a few days back for a dumpster fire, Quint 9 gets tapped out. Show up and transit police have tried putting it out and no success. 9 hits it with water and it re-ignites. 9's skipper pulls the boys back and calls hazmat. You guest it, red phosphorus, meth lab dump. Which is now phosphine gas. Crew to hospital, and hazmat has a long night. No such thing as a routine dumpster fire these days guys. Be safe. And I do remember the "white powder" scare days. A little baking powder on a bench could shut down an entire city block!!!

    I know this thread is a little old but, we are in the process of specing a rig for a county wide response team. We are looking for something with a single axle, basic set up. This rig will be for tech.'s and research only, command and decon will be with other units. We will carry the normal compliment of tools, overpak's, non-sparking tools, nuetrilizing agents, reference materials, monitoring equipment, suits.

    Question is, can anyone please provide

    rig pic.'s of similar nature
    rig spec.'s
    equipment lists
    anything that you may think of will help realy.

    Anything that you do not wish to post in a reply can be sent to
    eckcapemaycbrne@yahoo.com

    Thanks in advance.
