The Hazardous Materials Response Team (HMRT) is a 12 person team developed from fire department personnel which are highly specialized and trained in order to provide a high level of technical service to the community. Within the City of Clovis reside many businesses that use or distribute very dangerous and toxic chemicals. These chemicals are transported throughout the City of Clovis on a daily basis and therefore travel throughout our roadways in placarded or unmarked transportation vehicles. The HMRT is not only trained to handle leaks and spills of know chemicals, but also handle the improper disposal and dumping of unknown materials. The HMRT trains with local businesses and other responding agencies on a regular basis preparing for the possibility of both large and small scale emergencies. The HMRT maintains a Type 1 Certification through the California Office of Emergency Services (OES).
