Special Rescue Equipment & Homeland Security
Station 79 (9150 Winton Road) houses Rescue 200 of the Hamilton County Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team. This highly specialized team responds throughout Hamilton County and the surrounding area providing technical rescue such as high angle, confined space, and trench rescue. Several members of the department have received specialized training and serve as members of the USAR Team.
In 2011 A Homeland Security grant provided a search and rescue boat to Hamilton County Park Rangers and the Springfield Township Fire Department. The boat is used for dam safety inspections and for water rescue.
