Fire Rescue Operations

Clandestine Drug Laboratories Awareness Package

The Office of the Fire Commissioner, in collaboration with the Calgary Fire Department, developed the Clandestine Drug Operations Awareness and Safety manual to enable first responders to recognize and respond to clandestine drug operations (methamphetamine labs and marijuana grow-ops). The manual has information on detecting these labs, the dangers involved (explosions, fire, exposure to toxic chemicals), safety equipment, and decontamination procedures.

The French version of the manual was produced in collaboration with the Québec Ministère de la Sécurité publique.
