Finch Paper upgrades hazmat team at NY mill

May 19, 2010 - 06:00

GLENS FALLS, NY, May 19, 2010 (PostStar) -Finch Paper LLC unveiled its new hazardous materials response vehicle on Tuesday, a $135,000 investment the company hopes it won't need to use.

Because Finch handles hazardous chemicals like ammonia and chlorine in the papermaking process, it voluntarily formed a hazardous materials team more than a decade ago with staff trained to respond in the event of an emergency.

Until this week, the team stored its supplies and equipment on a tow-behind trailer. With the addition of the truck, the team will be more mobile and better equipped.
