The Whitley County Emergency Management Agency is comprised of various specialized teams responsible for providing various services and programs to ensure the responsiveness of our county. 
Whitley County Hazardous Materials Response team is a volunteer mutual aid company that jurisdictional Fire Departments can call on for specialized hazardous materials releases. 
These releases can be either from a Vehicle Accident or a Facility release. 
The team is responsible for the contaimination and clean up efforts of the release or spill.  They work with the Owners/Operators to ensure that all measures have taken place to bring the environment back to the way it was before the release or spill. 
They are charged with making sure that IDEM, State, and Federal regulations are adhered to.
