  • Special note: This truck carries oil dry for cleaning up fuel and oil spills. Two special water extinguishers are carried on the truck with an Environment Protection Agency-approved product called Micro-Blaze, which is a product that eliminates the flammability hazard of a fuel or oil spill. It is a hydrocarbon neutralizer that we spray down on top of the spills that breaks down, degrades and digests the waste of the molecules and basically eats them away. This is a sound and environmentally friendly way of cleaning up these spills for our environment instead of just washing them off the road with water alone, which pollutes the surrounding environment. Although this is an expensive product to use, it is well worth it for the environment.
