Pride, Commitment, Knowledge, Teamwork
The Special Operations Division (SOD) was created in response to the need for well-trained, knowledgeable, and skilled personnel to meet the demands of an increasingly dangerous and complex working environment. The mission of the SOD is to utilize its personnel to increase the efficiency with which we currently respond to, and mitigate situations such as, Mass Casualty Incidents, Natural & Manmade Disasters, Terrorism, and Hazardous Materials Incidents.
