Our HAZARDOUS MATERIALS RESPONSE TEAM which is comprised of 6 Hazardous Material Technicians is prepared to travel with equipment and personnel to where ever they may be needed by direction of the Concordia Parish Office of Homeland Security. We continue to work very closely with the local Office of Homeland Security in preparation for any type of natural or un-natural disaster. The SPECIAL RESCUE RESPONSE TEAMS work closely with local industry in various types of rescue training including, but not limited to, high angle rescue, confined space rescue, extrication and rapid intervention teams.
Vidalia Fire Department also works closely with local law enforcement in the fight against arson and juvenile fire setters. Members of local law enforcement also volunteer their time off to participate in training with The Vidalia Fire Department to better help the department on various types of scenes when needed.
Our department also has a full time Fire Prevention and Fire Safety Instructor, EMT Instructor, and C.P.R. Instructor that teaches these types of classes to public entities such as The Council on Aging, Home Health Agencies, the Vidalia School System and our local industries such as BASF, Vidalia Apparel and Bungee.
