Abstract

A series of studies on lessons learnt from emergencies after accidents involving dangerous substances in various EC member states was set up by the JRC. This volume describes the results of such a study for the United Kingdom. The organisations involved in emergency planning and response to chemical emergencies in the UK include central and local government, the emergency services, voluntary organisations and industry. The information sources available to the emergency services at the scene of the incident are examined. A limited number of chemical incidents are analysed in depth, with the aim of collecting information on the scale and nature of the response in each case.
