Chemical Accidents

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Through out the world there have been enough industrial chemical accidents that have caused governments to take a step back and prepare a plan to deal with them. One of the most devastating examples happened in 1976 when a pesticide plant released a cloud of toxins into the air causing 600 people to be evacuated and 2000 to be treated for poisoning. It became known as the “Seveso Accident”. This along with other notable chemical accidents have lead to new directives on storage and processing activities of harmful chemicals.

Recovery

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Once the threat is over it becomes time to asses the damage and start the rebuilding and recovery. In civil defense it is best to have a game plan before any emergency even arises so that the recovery crews are aware at what will happen next and speed up the process. Preparation can be done such as planning alternate motor car routes for damaged road, having a boat transport backup incase a bridge is taken out or preparing meeting areas for civilians. These actions can be prepared before any such threat even becomes realized.
