Resilience Rising: Navigating Natural Disasters with Environmental Expertise
The harmful effects of unchecked hazardous materials are not just a potential issue during human-driven activities, such as construction or manufacturing -- they also pose a significant threat during and after natural disasters. Hazardous materials resulting from natural disasters negatively affect human health and contribute toenvironmental degradation. Familiarity with these naturally occurring hazardous materials is crucial for responsible disaster recovery management andimplementing effective hazardous materials mitigation techniques as part of future disaster prevention plans.
Scoot & Ash
Soot and ash are by products of wildfires that canpose serious health risks to humans, especially those with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular diseases. If left untreated, soot and ash fromwildfires can also cause serious interior andexterior property damage. Cleaning soot and ash assoon as it is safe mitigates environmental impact, reduces property damage, and improves the safetyand health of humans post-wildfire.
Dust & Debris
Natural disasters like wind erosion events, hurricanes, and tornadoes can generate hazardousdust containing harmful particles like heavy metals and chemicals, leading to respiratory issues andeven severe health problems or death. Similarly,post-disaster debris, encompassing organic andinorganic waste, poses significant risks to humansand property. Swift debris cleanup coupled with a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment is crucial for comprehensive post-disaster recovery.
