    Brief History of Western Wayne County Hazardous Materials Response Team:

    Brief History of the Michigan WMD RRTN:

    Shortly after September 11, 2001, Michigan recognized the need to respond to terrorist attacks and the likelihood that weapons of mass destruction (WMD) would be the means and method of affecting far reaching public casualties across our state.  To address these threats, Michigan established a Regional Response Team Network (RRTN), comprised of seventeen hazardous materials team (a.k.a. Haz-Mat Teams).  The Haz-Mat Teams chosen represented the best and the brightest the State of Michigan had to offer, as they had already demonstrated state-wide cooperation on hazardous materials spills and releases, as well as providing outstanding resources and support to other emergency response networks. 

    The Haz-Mat Teams that make up Michigan’s RRTN include:

    ·         Detroit Hazmat

    ·         Ann Arbor Fire Department

    ·         Wayne County Hazardous Materials Response Team

    ·         Lansing Fire Department

    ·         Grand Rapids Hazmat Team

    ·         Oakland County

    ·         Clinton Twp Fire

    ·         Berrien County Sheriff Department

    ·         Traverse City Fire Department

    ·         Warren Fire Department

    ·         Tri-City Area Hazardous Material Team

    ·         Alpena Fire Department

    ·         Battle Creek

    ·         Escanaba

    ·         Saint Clair County Hazmat Team

    Since its formation and over the past eight years, the RRTN has been providing rapid emergency response assistance for events involving WMD and acts of terrorism, coordinating resources and professional expertise for a wide range of disciplines and across local, state and Federal levels.  Additionally, the RRTN and local resources and communities, augment and heighten the emergency response efforts of the Michigan Department of State Police and their resource divisions: the Emergency Support Team, the Canine Unit, and the Bomb Squad.

    The Livonia Fire & Rescue Department is home to the Western Wayne County Hazardous Materials Response Team (Western Wayne County HMRT). Currently, Western Wayne County HMRT “Haz-Mat 1” calls Station 3 home, which is located on Seven Mile Rd. in the city’s northwest side, responds to all incidents involving hazardous materials.
