HazChem At Work

In February, 2021, HazChem was called to handle a large highway gas and oil spill, involving a fallen truck, which had caused the closure of a four-lane highway to a complete stop for hours.

Once HazChem received its emergency call, and once we arrived on the scene, our crew effectively stopped the gas and oil from spreading. Then our crew made sure the released gas and oil would cause no harm. Within 50 minutes of our arrival, two lanes of the highway were operating. Within two hours after our arrival, all four lanes were back open. We had effectively and completely cleaned up the spill, receiving the gratitude of area police officers, emergency medical workers and the city fire department.

HazChem is honored that both large and small city officials throughout the Midwest know we are a trustworthy company that is ALWAYS ready to serve.
