Unique and proven spill response and emergency service equipment systems have been implemented for use by ACT response teams. This allows for unsurpassed readiness.

ACT maintains 24-hour access to personnel and equipment to facilitate movement of resources from the nearest ACT Operations Center to the spill site.
ACT utilizes specially-designed equipment exclusive to ACT. Our primary Emergency Response Units (ERU) are designed to transport five responders and sustain level “A” support for 48 hours without restocking. They contain all items needed for confined space entry, from personal protective equipment ranging from Level “A” through “D” to all necessary monitoring equipment
for the entries. The ERU includes office space, a communications center, decontamination systems, sanitary facilities, safety showers and an eyewash station.
ACT also maintains a portable incident command center. This unit allows customers and regulatory personnel to meet and map out an incident action plan in a meeting room setting. The command center’s layout allows customers to track media coverage. It includes a communications center and an office setting for execution of paperwork and resource tracking.
ACT response teams’ key personnel are issued response trucks so a timely response can be made 24/7. These trucks are outfitted with safety devices, emergency lighting, and response supplies.
