Welcome to the third issue of ‘The Spill’, the chemical safety newsletter for blue light services around the globe.
The UK Chemsafe service, managed by NCEC on behalf of the Department for Transport and Chemical Industries Association, provides a free at the point of use advice telephone line which connects chemical specialists with the emergency crews attending incidents involving chemicals.
The chemical specialists can provide advice to emergency services personnel over the telephone (Level 1) on hazards, decontamination, reaction predictions and will endeavour to make contact with the manufacturer if additional support is required.
In conjunction, NCEC also provides chemical advice via the European Intervention in Chemical Emergencies (ICE) network and directly supports several emergency services across the world.
