Methamphetamine and Meth Labs
First Responders


If a laboratory is discovered while methamphetamine or other drugs are being processed, officers with clandestine lab response training or first responders with hazardous materials training should be the only personnel to enter the area in order to shut down the equipment and stop the process.

Private persons or personnel from other agencies who do not have clandestine lab response training or hazardous materials training who find a lab site should leave immediately, Dial 911, and stay away from the site.

See our On-scene Safety  page which is for law enforcement staff or other staff for first contact with suspected clandestine lab.
