The results are in from the 13th annual Hazmat Challenge, hosted this week by Los Alamos National Laboratory. The competition featured hazardous response teams from New Mexico and Oklahoma.
This year’s first place winner was the Midwest City, Oklahoma Fire Department with the Farmington Fire Department in second place and Española Fire Department coming in third.
“Last year, Farmington won and Midwest City came in second,” Brad Lounsbury said. He is a longtime hazardous materials technician and the LANL hazardous devices team leader.
“Midwest City came in first the year before,” he said. “The competition is well established between the two. Kudos to both of those teams.”
Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and the Santa Fe Fire Department also participated in the technical training props, two special events and an obstacle course.
