Crawford County Hires Apollo, PA firm as Level A HAZMAT Response Team
Apollo, PA- McCutcheon Enterprises, Inc. (MEI) is pleased to announce that it is now the Level A HAZMAT Response Team for Crawford County, PA. MEI is a PA Act 165 certified HAZMAT response provider now serving 8 counties throughout Western PA.
“We welcome Crawford County as our newest HAZMAT response client and look forward to working with them in this venture,” said Calvin McCutcheon, MEI president. “Crawford County has been a client of our training division over the years and we are excited to provide them with this new level of service,” McCutcheon concluded.
Allen Clark, Director of the Crawford County Emergency Management Agency, explains it this way: “Hiring MEI will enable us to provide a tiered response to hazardous materials incidents. The response level needed is dependent upon the severity of the incident, which is determined by the fire department that is automatically dispatched. If needed, the fire department can request the Crawford County HazMat Response Team, and if the severity of the incident exceeds their capabilities, a trained Level A Team, McCutcheon Enterprises, Inc., will be requested.”
Clark continued, “we are excited to continue this partnership with MEI which now includes Level A HAZMAT response. The County has worked with them in training, exercises, conferences, and other hazardous material preparedness efforts.”
“This is right up our alley,” said William Krulac, HAZMAT/ER Coordinator at MEI. “With response locations in Emlenton, and Apollo, there is no doubt we can be there in an appropriate timeframe ready to provide our complete waste management solutions for the task at hand,” Krulac concluded.
