    Are HAZMAT and WMD equipment and training high on the list of priorities, or would it be a loosing battle?

    Not high on the list depending on your population and other stats. If you're not a high WMD risk area then it is a long uphill battle. Not impossible, just probably tougher than a truck.

    Over the last 4 years DHS has sent billions to the various state Homeland Sec depts for purchase of such equipment. Some of the $ have actually trickled down to FD. Depends on the state. Much has stayed at state (or region) level buying gold plated toilets, etc. And decon/WMD contingency equipment. Contact your state homeland sec to see what they have on hand/where. And what funding they have available from FY05 FY06 FY07 (and in a few days FY08).

    Likely response is they have already purchased the equipment your state needs and it is in place at _________. In which case they may (or may not) be correct so request mutual aid support and have them bring their toys out to support you in training and operations.
