Chief Alec Oughton
“This rescue allowed the hazmat team to consolidate all required special service equipment and eliminate the need for one additional hazmat unit. It was built to wear multiple hats as a primary special service response vehicle as well as a first out regional hazardous materials response vehicle serving 26 counties in the Commonwealth."
