New Hazardous Materials Vehicle

The Worcester County Special Hazards Response Team is pleased to have accepted delivery of a new 2016 Hackney Light Rescue to be placed in service as the new Hazmat 1. This unit is replacing a 1982 Ford/Swab rescue truck. Several members of the Fire Marshal's Office traveled to Washington, NC to inspect and verify the vehicle met our specifications. Our most sincere thanks to the Worcester County Commissioners who approved the purchase of the vehicle and their continued support of the hazardous materials team. The vehicle will be housed along with other hazmat equipment at the Worcester County Fire Training Center in Newark.
