What’s the difference between hazmat auxiliary and hazmat? And how many staff do they need each?

Hazmat and Hazmat auxiliary both do the same thing. Hazmat auxiliary takes 2 staff and hazmat takes 4 staff.

Mainly just for preference. My town I live in has a Hazmat Truck, but then also has an auxiliary following to provide additional equipment and man power.

How about some kind of Homeland / WMD. That would supplement Haz Mat, decon. Maybe an Emergency Management Director type similar to a rescue Captain or Battalion Chief.

Also I know we have Hospital evacuations how about a MERV ( mobile emergency room vehicle) an EMS bus that carries 6-10 patients. With staff of 6. $250,000 to $300,000
