Status

Existing

Description

This service package integrates incident management capabilities with commercial vehicle tracking to assure effective treatment of HAZMAT material transport, including response to incidents. HAZMAT tracking is performed by the Fleet and Freight Management Center. The Emergency Management Center is notified by the Commercial Vehicle and the Fleet and Freight Management Center of the HAZMAT vehicle location and information about the HAZMAT load. If an incident occurs, the Emergency Management Center can use the information to coordinate the response. The response is tailored based on information that is provided as part of the original incident notification or derived from supplemental information provided by the Fleet and Freight Management Center. The latter information can be provided prior to the beginning of the trip, during the trip, or gathered following the incident depending on the selected policy and implementation.
