emergency & disaster response


Our Primary Service: Emergency and Disaster Response Management

Chemical spills, fires, transportation accidents and contamination due to natural or man-made disasters can present unique challenges to you and your business. These disasters force changes in schedules and disrupt normal business activities; worse yet, they refocus your attention to the disaster and what to do rather than on your normal business activities.  

To further complicate matters, the “typical” environmental consultant (and/or under-qualified or overzealous) emergency response contractor often does not readily recognize or adapt to the unique challenges posed by your specific incident.

Emergency and Disaster Response Management is a primary service provided by Highlands Environmental Solutions. We possess a wealth of experience to determine the best approach and/or solution for each unique incident. With our One-Call Incident Management System, (Our app can be found at the bottom of this page or the immediate emergency help button at the top of each page) we can serve as your representative to eliminate the chaos, reduce cost, and allow you to return to your primary business responsibilities and minimize your liability exposure.

Emergency Response Management

Around the clock we provide:

  • Experienced consultation
  • State and Federal notification services
  • A network of spill response contractors
  • Rapid mobilization for on-site supervision
  • A network of subcontractors for drilling, excavation, disposal, material recycling, etc.
  • Documentation of response activities

Our philosophy is that aggressive initial remedial response and active response management are the keys to a successful and effective response to a spill or disaster. A systematic approach and evaluation of alternatives to address your incident are critical elements for success. This approach saves time, money, prevents wasted effort or confusion in a proactive approach.

Disaster Mitigation & Management Services
