Fentanyl Contaminated Properties. How Can We Clean Them Up?
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid pain reliever that can be deadly even in small amounts. Emergency responders and hazmat teams risk potential exposure to the opioid when responding to incidents at mixing houses, pill factories, or in makeshift laboratories found in apartments, hotels, houses, garages, and storage facilities. Please join NEHA and EPA on December 3 at 2:00pm ET for a webinar on fentanyl contaminated properties and information on EPA’s new fentanyl fact sheet to assist in safe remediation of opioid contamination.
EPA has developed a fentanyl fact sheet to support EPA on-scene coordinators providing assistance to local, state, tribal, and county hazmat partners in remediation of opioid contamination. The fact sheet provided information regarding the characteristics of fentanyl and fentanyl analogs and potential exposure pathways, physical properties, appropriate personal protective equipment, field detection, sampling, and analysis information. EPA presenter and Homeland Security researcher Dr. Lukas Oudejans will give an overview of this work in the upcoming webinar.
Date: December 3
