The article offers guidelines in minimizing the occurrence of hazardous materials incidents. Security personnels are suggested to evaluate dispatch information or how the incident call was received. They should avoid the urge to rush in for them not to become part of the problem. They should position themselves at least 300 feet from the scene of the incident. However, this distance can be increased further depending on the situation.
