The Chagrin/SE Hazmat Team began training for response to the consequences of a terrorist attack following the attacks on our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, and the training has been continuous ever since.










Our team is one of only nine specially trained teams in the state of Ohio tasked with civilian response to terrorist incidents.
