Rapid Analysis, Assessment, & Response Following Transportation Incidents
Since our founding in 1997, EC has been responding to train derailments and other transportation incidents involving hazardous materials. In order to respond to the hazardous potential of derailments, our on-call team of toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and medical staff maintain vigilant readiness to help keep the community and response personnel safe from any potential harm. Our personnel has responded to hundreds of derailments and trucking spills, and we are often relied upon by regulatory agencies to help solve environmental crises.
Emergency response services include identification of involved chemicals, analysis of environmental fate, determination of safe levels in air, water, soil, or other media, education of local health providers regarding the involved substances, risk communication, and general incident management.
