The IMS emergency response vehicle carries several types of fluid spill absorbents along with the tools necessary to clean spilled fluids and stop active leaks.  A fuel extraction system capable of pumping off 190 gallons of diesel fuel and has been used repeatedly to prevent pollution of soil and waterways. Extracting fuel at the incident scene saves time and money.  The time saving allows roadways to be opened sooner and frees law enforcement and fire departments to return to their normal duties.  The cost savings are exhibited by comparing the high cost of remediation work with a nominal charge for the fuel extraction.  Empty fuel tanks takes large scale remediation work out of the equation.
