When a non-life threatening spill occurs, once a service call is received by members of the 78th Civil Engineer Group, response is immediate. This was the case on Feb. 9 when treated waste water sludge was found to be overflowing from a tank outside Bldg. 352. Fire department response was not required for the waste water sludge spill, since there was no threat to life or safety, according to Marshall Wall Jr., 78th Civil Engineer Squadron acting director. A 78th CEG team was called in to clean up the area. In the event a major hazardous spill occurs, an observer should call 911. Then, the base fire department responds, and may require that the affected area be evacuated, or instruct personnel to shelter in place, depending on the hazards. Security Forces would also be notified as well as the Command Post. U. S. Air Force photo by Sue Sapp
