A video shot Wednesday afternoon of Abilene firefighters and police officers putting on what the Facebook poster described as “haz mat” suits actually was the city’s SWAT team staging, Police Chief Stan Standard said.

The video of first responders and what the poster called a “military-style” vehicle at Fire Station No. 4 at 3750 Grape St. has been shared more than 900 times and garnered almost 9,000 views by 5 p.m. Wednesday.  

The SWAT team was responding to a “man threatening suicide,” Standridge said. “They geared up, which is likely what a misinformed viewer saw.”

Police earlier in the afternoon stated  the man did not harm himself.
