WE DON'T BELIEVE YOUR EMERGENCIES HAVE TO BE A SURPRISE.
Emergency Support Function 10 (ESF-10) is intended to aid emergency managers and planners in identifying significant hazardous material threats in the community before they occur. ESF-10 can help focus prevention and preparedness measures, shape training efforts and clarify equipping requirements.
EHS Resource Group Conducts Hazardous Commodity Flow Studies and RMP Facility Assessments in Support of ESF-10 Guidelines
Before ESF-10 requirements existed, President of EHS Resource Group, Matt Woody began conducting hazardous commodity flow studies while serving as the Hazardous Materials Coordinator for the Des Moines, Iowa Fire Department. He found them a critical tool for assessing the adequacy of HAZ MAT preparedness measures, training and equipment inventories. We have assisted numerous counties, cities and LEPCS with their ESF-10 planning and would welcome the opportunity to assist you.
Matt served with the Des Moines Fire Department for 22 years-seventeen as HAZ MAT Coordinator, and continued to conduct the assessments until leaving to form EHS Resource Group in 1999. Since then, EHS Resource Group has had the privilege to conduct facility assessments and hazardous commodity flow studies for many communities, County Emergency Agencies and Local Emergency Planning Committees. EHS Resource Group can assist you in deciding the scope and complexity of your study, and conduct the necessary surveillance and data gathering. You will have a much clearer picture of the hazardous materials, material volume and the transport types moving through your community. We will analyze the transportation or facility data and provide recommendations for preventative and preparedness measures, training and specialized response equipment. We will identify areas vulnerable to a release along transportation routes and near chemical facilities and aid you-using historical weather data, in determining the likely movement of an airborne release. We will generate maps showing these vulnerable zones and estimate the population likely affected by the release, using US Census Bureau data.
Let us assist you with this very important risk assessment tool. ESF-10 compliance is a critical step towards taking the surprise out of which hazardous materials, what transportation mode and the locations where HAZ MAT emergencies are likely to occur.
Let us help you determine the type of study that would be most beneficial to your jurisdiction. ESF-10 works.
