Threatening Roadway Spills Call For Serious Response
November 21, 2018
Whenever a spill occurs on a roadway the sense of emergency response heightens. All spills are and should always be treated with serious appropriate attention and complete remediation, following all local and state guidelines. When a spill occurs along a roadway we are dealing with not only the environment, nearby waterways, pollutants, compressed gases, liquids or hot materials, local residents, we are also dealing with the safety of motorists and all involved in a clean up. Authorities, motorists, firemen, EMT, accident victims, and all clean up personnel involved are at risk during clean up on a roadway. All involved are forced to work together following the incident command system to complete a common goal; ensure the safety and thoroughness of the clean up at hand. Making sure that the job is done correctly, safely, and properly, is paramount to the environment to ensure for the safety of all motorists. Even with this said, roadway spills are dangerous, period. Often times a spill can consist of combustible, ignitable or corrosive pollutants, which is why having a properly trained staff that understands the circumstances at hand are key.
