Transportation Services & Accidents
Transportation accidents that cause chemical spills and releases have the potential to become serious health hazards and threats to humans and the surrounding environment. Depending on the accident and chemical, they can be flammable, explosive, corrosive, or highly toxic and they may react to air or water. They can spread rapidly. And they may release a toxic or volatile vapor that enters the body without physical contact. Also, if combined with another chemical or chemicals, the reaction and danger would likely be multiplied significantly. Contact us immediately to get assistance. ACRM is a OSRO (Oil Spill Response Organization #547) also a USCG BOA Contractor. ACMR annually responds to transportation accidents, facilities with accidental releases and maritime related incidents.
When we hear the term chemical spill it’s not always assumed that what we are dealing with is necessarily a danger, but the term HAZMat/hazardous material brings a much more threatening image. A HAZMat spill is a known serious health hazard/s and threat to humans and the surrounding environment, and by law must be handled as such. A specially trained and certified staff, proper gear and proper containment are critical and necessary.
