The CTEH team has extensive experience and a depth of equipment and field analytical resources to assist in the identification of what chemicals may be involved in a release. We are leaders in answering: What are the combustion by-products, what will be generated with unintentional mixing of chemicals, and what is the best way to measure for the chemicals of concern in the environment?
Determination of Safe Levels in Air, Water, Soil, or Other Media
Following a transportation incident that results in a chemical leak, the determination of safe levels across all relevant media is paramount. We have extensive experience conducting all necessary studies and assessments in order to establish safe level baselines, which in turn inform the overall response to the crisis.
Analysis of Environmental Fate
When a transportation incident occurs, unique environmental conditions can have a massive impact on the breadth of exposure. We use sophisticated tools and tenured expertise to analyze the totality of pollutant dispersion and determine its potential impact on communities and the environment as a whole.
Risk Communication Regarding Involved Substances
We are uniquely suited to assist clients with the development of sound and workable risk assessment plans. We have extensive experience in combustion permitting, chemical spill, and fire emergency response, which are of particular note in regards to derailments and other transportation incidents.
Our Global Preparedness Crisis Management team helps to ensure client preparedness for all-threat/all-hazard events. We are fully equipped to run any scale emergency response throughout North America. CTEH can also provide incident management and resource tracking software which supplements our crisis preparedness and response capabilities.
Since 1997, the CTEH team has been assisting with emergency response related to derailments and other traffic incidents. To meet immediate needs, we have the ability to respond with qualified, experience personnel in most areas in the US within hours, meaning we can respond to a transportation incident rapidly.
