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.
