Hazardous Materials

Hazardous Materials

The focus of the Hazardous Materials (Haz Mat) is compliance with Federal and Pennsylvania hazardous materials regulations.  Through planning, training, and public information, the impact of hazardous chemical emergencies is lessened.  Haz Mat works closely with the Lycoming County Local Emergency Planning Committee, hazardous chemical users, and emergency responders.

Site specific emergency plans are kept current for 93 facilities in Lycoming County.  Training courses, many to them customized for local needs, are offered to emergency responders.  Exercises are conducted to allow facilities, responders, and support agencies to operate jointly to solve a common problem.  Programs are offered to the public upon request.  Haz Mat assists local responders, the County's Haz Mat team, the Lycoming Decontamination Task Force, and foam bank during chemical emergencies.
