The Hazardous Materials Response Team is made up of GFD personnel who have received specialized training as Hazardous Materials Technicians. The Team is the designated emergency response authority for hazardous substance incidents in all areas of Weld County except on highways, where the State Patrol has jurisdiction. Team personnel also are available to provide hazardous materials response training to private and public agencies upon request.
The Special Operations Team is trained and equipped for technical rescue techniques - high and low angle rescue, trench and confined space rescue, etc. These individuals will respond on the aerial apparatus to all incidents where their special skills may be needed. In addition to the ropes, ladders and other specialized equipment used in technical rescue, GFD has purchased infrared imaging cameras. This device allows firefighters to "see" through smoke to find fire victims and hot spots, greatly facilitating rescue and fire extinguishment. These cameras will be available to the Technical Rescue Team, and on GFD's other Rescue units.
The Dive Team responds throughout Weld County and on request to surrounding areas to assist in water rescue and recovery situations. Team personnel are trained and certified as Public Safety Divers and by the International Association of Dive Rescue Specialists - in addition to their regular duties as firefighters. Dive Team personnel also conduct training sessions in dive rescue and water safety to outside agencies upon request.
The wildland fire team consists of 25 firefighters who are certified through the National Wildland Coordination Group to fight wildland fires. Each team member annually recertifies their qualifications by attending a mandatory refresher and completing an arduous pack test. The main objective of the team is to provide an increased level of experience and safety to wildland fire and wildland urban interface incidents occurring within jurisdiction or during aid requests to neighboring fire agencies. Sharing their increased knowledge with the remaining department personnel is another team function. Team members also deploy locally, regionally and nationally to aid in fighting large wildfires, which has proven to be the most significant method of gaining experience and increasing qualifications. The team operates two Type 6 Engines for response and deployment.
