Thanks to a recently released training video, emergency responders can learn about a free emergency response tool called CHEMTREC (CHEMical Transportation Emergency Center) that has been serving firefighters, law enforcement, and other emergency responders since 1971.
CHEMTREC is a 24/7/365 emergency call center that provides immediate information and assistance to anyone involved in a hazardous materials incident. It is staffed with emergency service specialists who can provide access to hazmat experts, chemists, physicians, and toxicologists as well as millions of Material Safety Data Sheets.
Emergency responders will learn that CHEMTREC can work for them in other ways, from participating in drill/exercise programs designed to help them train and prepare for an incident to the ability to trigger established mutual aid teams to the scene when an incident occurs.
