Emergency Spill Response
A speedy response to hazardous material spills is a highly important component of a company’s safety plan. Regardless of the size of the spill, the spill response should be the same. When the release of hazardous substances occurs your response should include the following steps.
- Evacuate all personnel from the area where the spill occurred.
- Identify the hazardous material that was spilled.
- Contact your spill response team and relay the type of spill that has occurred.
- Block off the area where the spill occurred.
- Disconnect all potential sources of ignition.
- If the hazardous material that was spilled is flammable notify the fire department.
Once your spill response team has arrived on the scene of the spill, they will then assess the scene and determine the steps necessary to contain the spill, clean up the spill, and dispose of the hazardous material.
The most efficient way of ensuring your business is compliant with all of the regulations surrounding a hazardous material spill is to have a relationship with an environmental services company you can trust.

Fuel Spill Containment
Many businesses, organizations, and local, state, and federal agencies are required to implement a 24-hour spill preparedness program. And, since response time is critical in mitigating loss during a spill, developing a relationship with a local environmental services company is one of the most important steps these organizations can make.

Diesel Spill Cleanup
Most environmental spill cleanup incidents occur on the roadways. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can carry more than 250 gallons of diesel. When these big rigs are involved in tractor-trailer accidents sometimes their fuel tanks become ruptured. When a diesel release of this magnitude occurs, you need an experienced environmental services company to respond swiftly and appropriately. Call North Texas Spill Response for a permanent solution.
Oil And Gas Spill Response
Spill Response Solutions
Depending upon where the gas spill occurs, the cleanup process may be more or less intensive. For example, if the spill occurs on the roadways, it can be cleaned up and remediated with minimal effort if the proper spill response occurs in a timely manner. All efforts must be made to ensure that not only the hazardous substance release is removed from the roadway, but swift attention to avoidance of spilling into the waterways is also required.
However, if a spill occurs on porous ground, spill remediation will be more intensive. The soil will need to be treated and in some cases, removal of the soil will be required. When soil removal is necessary, the environmental services company will need to follow all of the regulated waste disposal guidelines to ensure the spill area is clean and contaminate free.
When a fuel spill is on the ground, North Texas Spill Response removes the hazardous substance in the soil by placing it in contaminated soil plots. We then treat the contaminated soil with ELMN8 solution. ELMN8 is a patent-pending non-hazardous and non-toxic solution that, when applied treats any hydrocarbon contamination through a chemical oxidation process. Once the contaminated soil has been treated, the byproducts of weather and carbon dioxide are all that remain.
When a hazardous substance release occurs, response time is the most critical element. When you contract with North Texas Spill Response for your environmental services spill response company, we will ensure a speedy response, as well as ensure that you have all of the reporting paperwork in place before a spill occurs.
