Hazardous Materials


The Kelowna Fire Department has four Hazardous Materials Technician Teams available 24/7.  Each team is made up of six firefighters who dedicate themselves to responding to any incident involving chemicals, radiation, biological, or explosive threats to either life or environment.  A HazMat incident could involve anything from an overturned tanker truck on the roadways to a drug lab in a residential building.  Our teams are also becoming pro-active and lobbying to be called out to commercial and industrial structure fires to deal with the potential contamination hazards that may present themselves.
