Lisle-Woodridge Fire District Hazardous Materials Response Team shall advise and
assist the Incident Commander at a hazardous materials incident by employing our
technician-level skills to perform definitive identification, isolation, and
notification information at all incidents we respond to.
Given the amount of interstates, truck
routes, highways, railroads, intermodal transportation systems, and pipelines,
the potential for an incident, large or small, is always present. On the
average, literally tons of hazardous materials are transported through the
District at any given time of the day.
It is said that in life, change is one of
the few constants. The Lisle-Woodridge Fire District Hazardous Materials
Response Team has been evolving long before the events of September 11th,
2001. That day brought about a realization to the American public as well as the
emergency services. The horrible reality of domestic terrorism is a very real
threat to America.
- We exist for one reason, and that is to serve you, the residents of the
District. We would like to thank you for all of your support over the years.
