Emergency Response

The Emergency Response Program For Every Environment

As a result of decades of experience and thousands of emergency response calls, Lewis has developed an industry-leading response program: the ALERT Program – Activate Lewis Emergency Response Team.

The ALERT Program is simple and effective. The ALERT Program establishes a written commitment from Lewis to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. An ALERT Response Coordinator schedules a site visit to gain knowledge of unique response resources that may be needed in the event of an emergency. The Response Coordinator also shares regulatory and statistical data aimed at incident avoidance and limitation of liability.

The site visit is documented confidentially and, along with the Emergency Response Commitment form provided by Lewis, proves a valuable tool for incorporation into facility response plans and reference during planning and simulated response efforts. Our teams of highly trained personnel are always ready to respond. Lewis maintains an extensive inventory of capital and personnel resources available to respond at any time of day and under any circumstances.

Lewis has established a well earned reputation for our commitment to safety and to the quality and effectiveness of our response and remediation activities. Participants in the ALERT Program demonstrate indisputable commitment to their operations and to the safety and security of their employees.

As a United States Coast Guard classified Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO), Lewis’ teams of ALERT Responders are equipped to manage incidents inland or near shore. Requests to activate the ALERT’s Emergency Response activities are handled efficiently and expertly—no matter the time of day or conditions.
