The Hazardous Materials Team consists of 26 Hazardous Materials Technicians, 25 of which are Mason City Fire Fighters. When a haz-mat incident occurs, a team of technicians is assembled for response. All of the remaining fire fighters at the Mason City Fire Department are trained to the operations level at a minimum, although many are technicians.
The HazMat Team is under the leadership of Mason City Fire Department's Deputy Chief of Operations & Special Hazards Officer, Doug Janssen.
