As a 24-hour on-call response clean up and environmental services firm, CEA has extensive experience providing response actions and risk reduction measures in emergency situations. Our field service teams are able to mobilize immediately to sudden releases of oil and hazardous materials (OHM) for clients throughout New England. Our resources include spill cleanup equipment, trucks, boats, absorbents, containment booms, and storage drums. CEA quickly identifies the extent of the problem while evaluating and eliminating Imminent Hazards and preventing further migration of the release. Examples of CEA capabilities include:

  • Residential Fuel Spill Response
