Emergency Response

Hundreds of times every year, we effectively respond to emergency events ranging from spills to natural disasters.

Emergency events demand a timely, effective response. Our large team of trained staff, and immediate availability of specialized vehicles and equipment, supports this capability.

From the Gulf states to the eastern seaboard, our 24-Hour Emergency Response teams respond to:

  • Biohazard events
  • Over-the-road, rail and aviation incidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Oil, petroleum and chemical spills
  • Industrial accidents, explosions and fires


Our emergency response work has included anthrax decontamination in New York, New Jersey and Washington, DC, and disaster relief and reconstruction following Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Harvey.

A broad range of capabilities support our ability to respond in a timely fashion:

  • Emergency preparedness training
  • Response management (Alliance Network, Tier I & II SPCC Responder)
  • Spill containment/recovery
  • Preparedness planning
