Hazmat 1 went in service in June 2005 - and serves both the City of Springfield and Clark County.

The special unit - which is based at Station No. 1 on North Fountain Avenue with Rescue 1, Truck 9 and Battalion 1 - was built by Sutphen Corp. plants in Springfield and Dublin, Ohio, and financed by a federal grant.

Hazmat 1 is owned by the Clark County Commissioners. It is staffed by Springfield firefighters.
