Is Your Neighborhood Safe?

After a Meth lab bust in a neighborhood home, the Hazardous Materials team removes dangerous chemicals used in the manufacturing process.

The increasing numbers of Methamphetamine (Meth) Labs in the State of Colorado have become headline news and epidemic in proportion. The personal, economic and environmental impact is devastating. Methamphetamine production is not a victimless crime. Task Force Members, Police Officers, Firemen, Hazardous Materials Teams, Emergency Medical Staff, Social Workers, Trash Collectors, Utility Workers and unsuspecting Citizens are exposed to the dangers of Meth Labs everyday.

Do you know what some of the dangers are?

  • Children of Methamphetamine manufacturers suffer burns, respiratory problems, toxic blood levels, neglect and abuse.
  • These labs are highly explosive and flammable threatening nearby properties.
  • The manufacturing process contaminates carpet, appliances, furniture, clothing, drywall, insulation, and the building itself.
  • The byproducts are extremely toxic.
  • These labs are polluting our air, water and land.
  • A Meth lab can be located anywhere; the house next door, hotels, motels, RV's, campers, trailers, public storage facilities, the highway, forests, and etc.
  • Many labs are portable which can make them difficult to find.
