Roadway spills and hazards are likely during this time of year and authorities, motorists, firemen, EMT, accident victims, and all environmental and first responder personnel involved are at heightened risk during roadway responses. All involved work together following the incident command system to complete a common goal; ensure the safety and thoroughness of the environmental responsibilities at hand. 2020 has also brought about another list of protocols to follow along with following state guidelines for clean-up, COVID-19.
