Hazardous Materials

From anti-freeze to radioactive waste, the Hazardous Materials section of Emergency Management responds to any reported chemical or oil spill. Teams respond quickly to contaminated sites and provide the tools and equipment necessary to contain and clean-up spills.

Chemical wastes that contaminate the soil, seep into groundwater, or run into rivers and streams are a threat to public health and the environment.

Photo processing chemicals, military munitions, lead paints, residuals from the petroleum industry, medical waste and used oil are all considered hazardous materials.

The majority of spills happen on our highways as truckers transport materials. When a spill is reported, the Haz-Mat teams are on the scene as quickly as possible to contain the waste.
