Shannon McFee/Defense Attorney 21:13 "It goes directly to the defense of heat of passion because it's all about the state of mind - what did the defendant know?"

POISONOUS CHEMICALS.

FLAMMABLE FUMES.

DEADLY REACTIONS.

THESE ARE VERY REAL THREATS METH LABS POSE.

DEP. CHIEF MICHAEL SWANSON, NORTH NAPLES F.D.

04:09:54-:56

You really don't know what you're getting into.

EMERGENCY RESPONDERS AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE AROUND THEN ARE ALL AT RISK

IT'S NOT ONLY CHEMICALS EMERGENCY RESPONDERS HAVE TO LOOK OUT FOR.

SWANSON

04:11:32-:41

A lot of times they'll put trip wires in. They'll put explosives somewhere, or something that falls and breaks something that releases a poisonous gas.

IF IT'S SERIOUS ENOUGH, LOCAL OFFICIALS CALL IN THE NATIONAL GUARD.

Col. Joe DeFee, U.S. Army National Guard

04:18:56-:06

I can say hey chief, you know, this is right now this is your worst case scenario. We can recommend road blocks, shelter in place, things like that.

AND WHEN THE LAB IS A POTENTIAL TICKING TIME BOMB, RESPONDERS MUST TAKE THEIR TIME DISMANTLEING THE OPERATION.

STANDUP

Inside this suit I lose up to half of my dexterity, almost 50 percent of my vision, and 80 percent of my hearing. On an hour air tank, you'll typically spend about 45 minutes inside the suit, but even that can be extremely taxing on the body.

Dep. Comm. Mark Sittery, U.S. Army National Guard

04:08:41-:46

You have a heat load on you. Obviously that suit can be 100 plus degrees inside.

NOT TO MENTION THE DANGER FOR ANY HOMES AND BUSINESSES NEAR A METH LAB.

TONIGHT'S GOOD QUESTION DEALS WITH THE DEBRIS LEFT BEHIND AFTER A TRAFFIC WRECK.

NBC-2'S CHAD OLIVER HAS THE ANSWER Return to index of stories...


GQ WHO CLEANS UP CRASH DEBRIS-BUBBA


IN HIS EMAIL, RANDY NOTED THAT REPLACING A TIRE IS EXPENSIVE!

IT'S A GOOD QUESTION BECAUSE SPILLS CAN ALSO BE HAZAROUS TO THE ROAD AND THE ENVIRONOMENT. Return to index of stories...


GQ WHO CLEANS UP CRASH DEBRIS-PKG


A CRASH LEAVES DEBRIS SCATTERED ACROSS THIS EAST NAPLES ROAD.

SHARDS OF GLASS AND TINY PIECES OF PLASTIC.

THOSE TWO GUYS ARE THE ANSWER TO THE GOOD QUESTION OF WHO'S RESPONSIBLE FOR CLEANUP.

and the bottom line it is the towing company.

CLEAN-UP IS INCLUDED IN THE FEES TOWING COMPANIES CHARGE.

"Alligator towing this is Dee, how can I help you today?"

WHEN DRIVERS RESPOND TO A CRASH, THEY KNOW CLEANING IS PART OF THE JOB DESCRIPTION.

TOW TRUCK OPERATORS SAY HOW WELL THEY CLEAN A ROAD OFTEN DEPENDS ON DRIVERS GIVING THEM ENOUGH SPACE TO WORK.

WRECKERS ARE CONSIDERED EMERGENCY VEHICLES SO THE 'MOVE OVER' LAW APPLIES.

It allows them to clean the scene, safely without a problem.

THERE ARE SERIOUS SITUATIONS THAT GO BEYOND SWEEPING.

Sometimes you have oil, some environmental concerns, but most of the time it's broken plastic 'cause cars are mostly plastic anymore.

CHECK-OUT THIS MESS!

LAST YEAR A TANKER TRUCK ROLLED OVER ON INTERSTATE 75 AND SPILLED THOUSANDS OF GALLONS OF GAS.

BECAUSE THE SPILL EXCEEDED 25-GALLONS, A CHARLOTTE COUNTY HAZMAT TEAM RESPONDED.

THAT'S COMMON WHEN LIQUIDS ARE INVOLVED; EXPLAINS FORT MYERS POLICE LT. JAY RODRIGUEZ.

Usually what we'll do as the Fort Myers police department is we do call for assistance from the Fort myers fire department. they'll come and they have the proper equipment to dispose of that.

BUT FOR MOST CRASHES, A BROOM IS ALL THAT'S NEEDED.

Most of the time, they understand it's their responsibIlity and they get it done. Return to index of stories...


GQ WHO CLEANS UP CRASH DEBRIS-BUBBA


LT. RODRIGUEZ SAYS CALL YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IF YOU SEE A ROAD THAT WASN'T CLEANED PROPERLY AFTER A CRASH.
