Oil and Fuel Spills and Marina Fires
The sooner a spill is cleaned up and the damage is mitigated, the better the outcome. Many chemicals make up petroleum products. All are hazardous to the health of humans, animals, sea life and plants to one degree or another. Some are also extremely unstable. So, it is essential that the chemicals are contained and that the threat of fire and/or explosion be kept at bay. To do that, it is necessary to know the characteristics and safest way to handle each possible compound so that every operation be carried out with limited impact or peril.
