How does it work?
When a spill or other environmental emergency occurs, numerous activities need to take place and multiple parties need to be involved. First responders must assess a range of factors such as release volume, proximity to water bodies, and the threat level to local communities and ecosystems, and match the laboratory analyses to the severity of the situation. Maxxam recognizes the difficulty associated with identifying and mobilizing the appropriate resources. To reduce this burden, Maxxam’s Emergency Response Hotline operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One phone call to 1-855-MAXXAM-1 (1-855-629-9261) kicks off a detailed internal and external communication protocol that identifies your needs and mobilizes the correct resources.
When Maxxam is engaged, your first responder will consult with a member of our expert Emergency Response team to select the support option best suited to the situation. Maxxam streamlines the work involved in getting analytical services underway and ensures rush results are delivered to the decision-makers as soon as possible.
