A lot goes into spill response and effective truck accident recovery. Pro-Enviro is dispatched when there is a motor vehicle fuel or oil spill, or when a load containing other hazardous material is lost on the road. In these blog archives, you’ll discover what is entailed with spill recovery. It includes assessment, creating a complete heavy vehicle accident management plan, and then getting to work with spill containment, collection, disposal and remediation.
In many cases, our team at Pro-Tow 24 Hour Towing is on the job too. Pro-Tow uses wrecker style cranes to help with the heavy lifting to get the accident site cleaned up so we can open it back up to local traffic. We also work alongside local agencies like the Washington State Police and Fire Departments, and the Washington Department of Transportation. If you want more information about what we do, contact us any time.
If your semi-truck or fleet vehicles wind up in an accident, there are many things to consider regarding the recovery process. This is even more the case when the accident also results in a spill of hazardous fluids. Any vehicle or fleet of vehicles on the road must have an appropriate emergency spill response in place. One of the most critical parts of your spill response plan is knowing who to call when a spill happens.
On June 11, 2021, Team Pro-Enviro and Pro-Tow were called to the scene of an accident that involved a commercial box truck. This box truck fell into a ditch and caused damage to the cab and the fuel tank. This resulted in a significant fuel spill inside the ditch and its surrounding areas.
If your semi-truck or fleet vehicles get into an accident or need a tow, it’s likely you know who to call. However, do you know the next steps when that accident involves a spill? Different steps are involved in whether a spill is considered a hazardous material spill or legally requires a spill recovery.
In the busy logistics and transport industry, accidents can happen. These accidents can slow down businesses and cost money. If a cargo load spills or is compromised, getting things back on track as quickly as possible is critical.
We specialize in fuel spill recovery, cargo load recovery and heavy-truck recovery, but sometimes duty calls and requires something more! In this incident, we had to do a little electrical work to fix a refrigerated trailer.
