San Diego County and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will transfer $53,000 worth of emergency HAZMAT equipment to Mexico on Thursday afternoon.

The equipment will be given to the Baja California Secretary General and Mexican emergency responders.

The items are being transferred as part of the Border 2012 federal grant designed to increase border safety by ensuring emergency responders use the same equipment and undergo similar training.

Some of the items included chemical suits, gas masks and a decontamination tent.
