Hazardous Materials

The Burleson Fire Department responds to hazardous materials incidents to protect life, property, and the environment when potentially harmful substances are released. All fire companies are trained and certified to the “Operation and Technician Level” for hazardous materials from the Texas Commission on Fire Protection.

Station 1 houses a Hazardous Materials Response Trailer. This trailer contains protective equipment and decontamination tools in the event of a HAZ-MAT emergency. The Burleson Fire Department is also part of the Southern Emergency Response Preparedness Association.
