The Oklahoma City Fire Department introduced the newest addition to its fleet, Haz-Mat 5, on July 29 on their official Facebook page.
"We don't run medical calls with it, but we do carry a few basic life support pieces of medical equipment just in case we need them at a hazardous materials scene. We run to structural fires, auto accidents, and anything under the sun in the haz-mat world to take care of situations like chemical and fuel spills. We also go with the bomb squad a lot on runs regarding suspicious packages," Lieutenant Brandon Rudek says in the video. The station formed a building committee so they could be more involved with the engineers in making decisions about the best way to store equipment.
The department thanked residents in its social media post for "always ensure[ing] we have the finest equipment and training possible so we can serve you at the highest level."
