HazMat 17 is a custom SuperVac response unit which contains full hazmat equipment, decontamination equipment, breathing apparatus, and a small command office. 

The command office in HazMat 17 includes computer and fax capability, a fume hood for unknown chemical testing, and a large reference library. The unit also includes a diesel generator, awnings and a misting fan for personnel rehabilitation, and a light tower. HazMat 17 tows a large HazMat response trailer that contains absorbents, recovery drums, encapsulated level "A" suits and a pneumatically driven fluid pump and hoses.

Hazmat trainingHazMat 17 operates as a satellite unit within the Arapahoe and Douglas County's Hazardous Materials Response Team. When necessary, units from several agencies combine resources to provide a shared response capability. This response agreement provides a maximum response capability with a minimum cost to the taxpayer.

All Littleton firefighters are certified to the Operations level certification. The majority of the team’s members are certified to the NFPA 472 and State of Colorado Hazardous Materials Technician certification levels.
