Hazmat 14 returns to full-time staffing

Welcome back Hazmat 14! It’s been 12 years since Hazmat 14 had full-time staffing and this week, Fire Chief Ted Collas and Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, held a ceremony to place our hazardous materials unit back into service.

Hazmat 14 is housed and responds out of Station 14, located near Dublin and Academy. In 2009, Hazmat 14 lost its full-time staffing due to city budget cuts. The firefighters at Station 14 would still respond on this unit, but they would take the staffing from Engine 14 to respond, thus taking the engine out of service.

CSFD is excited to place this unit back into service full-time to protect the citizens of Colorado Springs.
