SVFD IS AN ALL HAZARDS AGENCY
We have the ability to respond to all hazards within our service area. This includes hazardous material responses (HAZMAT) and motor vehicle accidents (MVA). With Interstate 90 running through our service area and a number of factories and warehouses nearby, HAZMAT incidents and MVAs are an area of concern for us. These hazards accounted for roughly 6.5% of our call volume in 2022. Therefore, all of our firefighters are trained to be proficient in handling these types of emergencies.
