Thank you for your interest in our expert brief titled ‘Consequence Analysis of Accidents Involving Spilled Crude Oil’ prepared by the engineers at AristaTek, Inc. Our company was founded by experts in the fields of chemistry and hazardous materials, and we have been developing software solutions and expert commentary for responders and planners dealing with hazardous materials for nearly 20 years. This brief was prepared in response to the numerous events that have involved spilled crude oil, the latest being on December 20, 2013 in Cass County, ND. Analysis of events was done utilizing our flagship software, PEAC-WMD.
The disaster in Cass County, ND has opened the eyes of first responders, public safety professionals, emergency managers, LEPCs, lawmakers and many others around the country and the world to the dangers that large quantities of spilled crude oil can pose. The crude oil threat is not limited to just communities with intense oil well activity. Crude oil is a commonly shipped substance with an estimated 400,000 carloads shipped by rail in 2013, up nearly 70% over 2012 according to the American Association of Railroads. This means threats similar to that faced in ND could be common in any community. Fill out the information below to get prepared.
