Hazardous Material Spill–Before, During, and After

Helicopter 2Our businesses and emergency responders are well prepared to prevent and respond to hazardous material spills.  But as a new member of the Caldwell County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), I found this article prepared by the United States First Responders Association very informative for what the rest of our community can do to mitigate the impact and danger.

This gives you a lists of things you can do before, during, and after a hazardous material event to keep you and your family safe.

Get informed and stay safe, and thank your First Responders for all they do to help our community!
