Transporting Hazmat All types of chemicals are riding down our highways and railroads—ant killer, anti-freeze, shower cleaner and even biological and nuclear waste. Most of the time, chemicals arrive safely at their intended destinations. But once in a while, accidents happen. That’s why it’s important to have a plan in mind and be ready to act instinctively.  
Preparing for a Transportation Emergency:  
  • Stay aware of your surroundings.
  • Prepare to use your senses to help you decide how to act (Do you see a gas cloud? Smell a sharp odor? Hear an explosion?)
  • Follow directions from officials about sheltering-in-place or evacuating.
