EMERGENCY RESPONSE DIVISION

In order to actively meet changing industry needs with the growth of hazardous waste movements, Harold Marcus Limited implemented an emergency response spill team, equipped with a network of support services designed to respond to spill incidents throughout North America.  With the years of experience handling hazardous materials in the oil, gas, and chemical industry, the Marcus Emergency Response team has effectively and efficiently responded to hazardous and non-hazardous incidents throughout North America such as tank truck rollovers, in-plant incidents, marine and waterway spills, train derailments, chemical attacks, and other unique emergencies.  From the initial containment, to reclamation, to the final remediation, Marcus Emergency Response understands environmental regulatory requirements and works closely with the various ministries and government agencies on behalf of our clients.

Utilizing a 24-hour emergency response live answering service, Marcus Emergency Response can respond effectively to any stage of a spill incident, or if our customer prefers, a comprehensive site remediation. Our team believes that its ability to respond to the diverse nature of incidents comes not only from the effort and time put into continually updating and expanding the response equipment stocked, but also from the ability to pull resources from other divisions within Harold Marcus Limited, such as vacuum trucks and trailers, flatbed trailers, van trailers, and additional personal protection equipment stocks, quickly and easily. Customer concerns of multiple invoices are alleviated when they learn that all spill response billing, regardless of equipment or 3rd parties used, is completed through one simple and easy to understand invoice with all expense documentation provided for accountability.  As a transportation company, Marcus understands the position companies often find themselves in when held at the mercy of an emergency response company and the prices they seem to justify.  Because of this, Marcus Emergency Response will always work with our customers to find cost-effective solutions and always use modest rates, regardless of time of day, or day in the year.

Marcus Emergency Response is poised ready to respond at a moment’s notice with the following equipment, depending on size and complexity:
