May 2019, Emergency Response Spill Drill - Nashville, TN

Tradebe's Industrial Field Service Emergency Response Team recently participated in a Spill Drill on the Cumberland River in downtown Nashville, TN. 

This Spill Drill scenario was a simulation of a hijacking of a barge that ran aground and subsequently spilled.   Our participation was in conjunction through our partnership with NMAA (Nashville Mutual Assistance Association). Tradebe's Emergency Spill Response team from Goodlettsville, TN worked alongside the Coast Guard, Fire and local law enforcement. tradebe-emergency-response-spill-drill

Spill Drills are an important part of preparedness for emergencies, spills and natural disasters.  The act of planning and being prepared is the key to mitigating the damages to the environment especially when our waterways, rivers, streams and oceans are in close proximity.  Fast Response Time is of the essence in order to limit your liabilities and the lasting effects on the environment and people. 

At Tradebe, our priorities are Safety and the Protection of People and the Environment.  Our team is among the highest trained and most experienced spill responders in the business.
