Emergency Response and Incident Scene Management
Catastrophic events such as fire, explosion, accident, or major chemical release can cause significant injury, death, property damage, and environmental harm. These disasters can also subject companies to remedial and natural resource recovery obligations, as well as significant civil and criminal penalties and liability exposure.
