The current available resources include:
- Hazardous Materials Response

All Richland Hills firefighters are trained to the Haz Mat Technician level and are part of the Hazardous Materials Response Team. All personnel participate in quarterly Haz Mat training as well as annual skills verification and credentialing processes.
