Our response team is always ready to respond to incidents involving oil spills and releases of hazardous materials. The sooner we can respond, the less injury is done to Washington’s public health and safety, environment, and economy. We have teams based in Bellevue, Bellingham, Olympia, Spokane, Union Gap, and Vancouver to provide year-round, statewide, 24-hour a day response services.
Whether we are responding to chemical releases, motor vehicle accidents, grounded vessels, train derailments, or cleaning up drug labs, our top objectives are to ensure the health and safety of citizens, the environment and the economy. In Washington, we're designated to coordinate oil spills and hazardous materials response efforts by working with state agencies and local emergency response personnel on incidents that threaten or impact state waters.
