Today, a hazmat incident in 4's district occurred at 1100 hours in which a worker accidentally mixed ammonia and bleach. The chemical reaction produced a green chlorine gas that is toxic to the environment. Fortunately, no one was injured. The main picture shows minifigs running out of the building following the incident. Thanks to one of the bystanders who submitted these photos!
About this creation
Engine 4 arrives first. Response included Engine 4 (E4), Light Force 2 (LF2), Rescue 1 (R1), Hazmat 1 (HM1), and Battalion 1 (B1). Total minifigs that operated in the incident numbered 23.
R1 and HM1 arrive.
HM1 Specialists Jenkins and Morales suit up in the Level A suits and are assisted by Specialists Murray and Dawson
Other HM1 firefighters gather equipment to neutralize the chemicals. R1 firefighters (who are certified Hazmat technicians) meet with Battalion Chief Parkinson, HM 1 Captain Meyers, and R1 Captain Boyd for further instructions. By the time the fire department arrived, the gas had dissipated and nearby buildings within 4 blocks of the incident were evacuated for precautionary reasons.

E4 Captain Jordan and FF Allenby check on the two people inside the building. After it was determined that they had no immediate problems, they were transported to Castle Beach University Hospital for further evaluation. They were later released.
Two HM1 firefighters prepare for entry, the rest of HM1 set up the decon shower. R1 split into 2 groups of three to assess nearby buildings for gas. Each group had a meter, leak kit, and extinguisher just in case things went awry.

Jenkins and Morales handle the incident rather quickly and are hosed down and cleaned. The toxic hazard was neutralized and placed in the drum behind them. Castle Beach Police Department took over the scene and removed the drum containing the neutralized toxin.
Sorry for the small size, but MOCpages wouldn't allow me to upload a file over 10 MB :( This picture shows the men and women who responded along with the apparatus.
Another incident highlighting more of my apparatus. I just realized that my placement for the fire hydrant was wrong. It should have been down the block for safety reasons... Oh well... Also added the effect of the green gas using an app on my phone.
Please rate and comment! I certainly would love to hear feedback on the hazmat protocol.
