Uploaded by :

Geographical conditions can have a significant impact on the way responses to HAZMAT spills are managed. The writer looks at how and why geographical factors will have an influence. The writer then defines the different safety zones, starting with the hot, or exclusion zone, then looking at the warm and cold zone. Different types of decontamination processes which may be undertaken in the warm zone are discussed. Two sources are cited in the bibliography of this three page paper.
