Unfortunately, vehicle accidents happen. Sometimes, debris and a fuel spill from a crash require immediate spill recovery and cleanup. Who cleans up the mess?
Every location will have specific regulations on accident recovery, fuel spill recovery and environmental cleanup. In addition, the location and severity of the accident might also determine who arrives at the scene. Here are a few organizations that might be involved.
In a bad accident, emergency services like fire departments, ambulances, and police might arrive at the scene first. Their main focus is to ensure the safety of those involved, contain the situation, and identify and control any immediate hazards.
Depending on the severity of the fuel spill from a crash, various government agencies might arrive on the scene. For example, a local, state, or federal environmental agency may help assess and mitigate the environmental impact of the contamination and spill recovery.
In addition, transportation authorities, like the state Department of Transportation (DOT), may be responsible for coordinating the fuel spill cleanup efforts. DOT often contracts specialized spill recovery contractors, like Team Pro-Enviro, to help clean up a fuel spill from a crash.
Also, a local public works department might be involved if the crash occurred on public property. They might work with other agencies and Pro-Enviro to help remove debris and hazardous materials and restore the area.

Environmental Protection Agencies
Finally, if the accident caused a significant threat to the environment, an environmental protection agency might be involved. In some cases, they might oversee the cleanup and collaborate with other agencies and Team Pro-Enviro to restore the area to its natural state.
