Roadside Chemical Spills: What You Need to Know and How to Handle Them

Roadside chemical spills are a serious threat to public health and the environment. They can occur due to accidents involving trucks, trains, or other vehicles that carry hazardous or non-hazardous materials. They can also result from natural disasters, such as floods, hurricanes, or earthquakes, that damage or disrupt transportation infrastructure.

Roadside chemical spills can have various impacts, depending on the type, quantity, and location of the spilled material. Some of the potential consequences include:

  • Fire or explosion hazards
  • Air pollution and respiratory problems
  • Water contamination and aquatic damage
