Winter driving is hazardous. The roads are often slick with rain, snow, ice, hail, or seepage from vehicles that need to spend time in an auto shop. And even if the day is sunny and dry, it’s much more dangerous to be driving than it used to be: that other car could swerve into your lane because the driver is busy looking at a text. We know you’d never do such a thing while behind the wheel, of course.
Fortunately, we also know how to keep “emergency response” from meaning tow trucks, hazmat teams, fire departments and police. While we’re as grateful as you are that these public servants are first responders in an emergency, a little planning can prevent having to call them.
For instance: our portable spill containment berms. These handy spill solutions come in four sizes to fulfill the need for compact, rugged spill containment. Stowed behind the truck seat or in the cab of most equipment, a portable spill berm is readily available to catch unexpected leaks and spills.
Similarly, a savvy driver who has a FiberDuck Oil Absorbent Boom in the truck can quickly create a barrier to stop any oil leak from spilling onto the freeway. Booms can also be used on the roadway to prevent hazardous fluids from escaping into storm drains.
If you are part of an emergency crew, you’re probably already familiar with the benefits of XSORB EDGE Aggressive Absorbent, a non-toxic spill clean up solution that goes to work on the toughest road spills fast, lifting liquids from the surface so you can easily scrub away synthetic oils, petroleum, hydraulic fluids and fuel spills, leaving asphalt and concrete surfaces clean and dry, not slippery.
Wherever you’re driving this winter, park the phone and focus on the road. After all, it’s 2020, the year of clear vision. You owe it to yourself to live up to these digits.
