Hazmat Unit

What We Do

Since 1989, the Elmira Fire Department has had in service a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Level II Hazardous Materials Emergency Spill Response Team. The City of Elmira has shared service agreements with Chemung County to provide HazMat Emergency Spill Response anywhere in Chemung County. With so many industrial centers in the area such as Hardinge, Hilliard, IST, etc., the EFD HazMat Response Team plays an important role in the continued safety and security for the citizens of Elmira and Chemung County.
