The potential for widespread toxic exposures and threats to public health and the environment exists in the aftermath of major disasters.
The health effects of hazardous substances releases following earthquakes, floods, and wildfires are well-documented.
Exposure to hazardous substances may lead to acute and chronic health effects, and may potentially cause long-term public health and environmental impacts. Uncontrolled hazardous materials and debris pose significant threats to public health through inhalation of dust particles and contamination of drinking water supplies.
It is critical to address hazardous substance and remove debris as quickly as possible to abate these impacts.
