Region V has attained 501 c 3 status!


On September 25, 2014, Region V received notice that they were granted a tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service to form the Region V Hazardous Materials Response Commission Foundation Inc.

The Mission Statement of the Foundation is: To serve and support Region V Hazardous Materials Response Commission ("The Commission")

The Commission's purpose is to implement joint and/or cooperative action in training and response activities for hazardous materials in our 9 county region. The Foundation assists the Commission's members by lessening the burden of those counties and by fostering public safety.
