BFRD firefighters are trained and equipped to deal with most of the more common responses such as gasoline spills and leaks involving natural and liquefied petroleum (LP) gasses. For any releases of large quantities of hazardous materials such as from a truck or railcar or which involve more complex chemicals, the district is a partner and maintains a cooperative agreement as part of the Adams and Jefferson County Hazardous Response Team. The team will respond and work with us to resolve the matter.
Our firefighters regularly train with the members of the Adams and Jefferson County Hazardous Response Team and are familiar with their roles and responsibilities should a mutual aid response be warranted. Adams County provides its Bomb Squad services to the district for the examination and security of suspicious devices and packages.
