We received a call about a hydraulic fluid spill incident at the Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. Our spill recovery team quickly headed to the location with the necessary Pro-Enviro equipment and assessed the situation to make a plan.
In this interesting incident, on September 6th, 2020, Pro-Enviro arrived at the scene of an overturned and fully-loaded truck and trailer in Sumner, WA. The truck was now blocking the roadway and carrying a unique load that had spilled onto the roadway. It looked like salt, but the Sumner Police Department identified it as a kind of animal feed.
On February 10th, 2020 Pro Enviro was called to the scene of a parked bus at the Spokane Greyhound terminal that had a significant fuel leak. It required a spill cleanup. First, we had to deal with the bus. Once the leak was contained and no longer a hazard, our Pro-Tow 24 Hour Towing division hooked up the bus and removed it from the terminal.
In this incident on August 5th, 2020, Pro-Enviro responded to an emergency dispatch regarding a semi-truck and semi-trailer blocking the SR167. The truck was leaking fuel as well, but Team Pro-Enviro was quick to respond. We arrived on the scene with two heavy-duty trucks and immediately assessed the situation and reported to the incident command post.
A semi-tractor and trailer caught on fire on the I-90 near Issaquah, WA on March 7, 2020. Both Team Pro-Enviro and Pro-Tow were called to the scene to tow the smoked-out tractor and trailer and perform full accident and spill recovery. Because the truck was on fire, there were burned truck parts, debris, and other harmful contaminants on the roadway.
Pro-Enviro responded to a dispatch for an emergency diesel fuel oil spill on NB Interstate 5 South of Seattle at S. 272nd Street. The trailer had hit some road debris which punctured the fuel tank, causing the fuel spill. We arrived quickly at the scene, along with Team Pro-Tow, the Washington State Department of Transport, Incident Response and Washington State Police.
You have heard on the news that the trucking industry has become a front line during the COVID-19 pandemic. We support this industry with spill response and accident recovery services, and see first hand the impact it’s had on the industry. With a truck gets into an accident, not only is it a safety risk to the driver and everyone else on the road, it means that the transportation of goods and supplies has paused.
During these unprecedented times, people are starting to worry about the supply chain of food and other goods. Grocery stores are working hard to keep the shelves stocked, but still, items like toilet paper and household cleaners are hard to come by.
