MassGIS Data: DFS State HazMat Districts

September 2019
Download this layer: ESRI Shapefile

Overview

Sample of Massachusetts State Fire Districts

The MA HazMat Districts were created by the Department of Fire Services organized under the Executive Office of Public Safety, and overseen by the State Fire Marshal. The 6 divisions are strategically located to be able to respond anywhere in the state within 1 hour. The HazMat teams assigned to each district support the local fire departments with technical information, expertise and specialized equipment. The district layer was created by coding each town with numbers 1-6 and then dissolving the town boundaries.

This layer is stored in ArcSDE and distributed as DFS_HMD_POLY.
