Chip And Roll Equipment Recovery

Chip And Roll Equipment Recovery

In this emergency dispatch, on May 29th, 2020, we were called in to help with an overturned heavy-duty truck and trailer. The trailer was carrying a wood chipper. The combination was also leaking fluids, so Team ProEnviro also came to help with this equipment recovery. Our team contacted the deputy at the scene and got limited photos of the casualty. We sent a heavy-duty rotating crane-style wrecker, motor vehicle spill response vehicle, flatbed recovery tow truck and an emergency response Hazwoper. 

Equipment Recovery

We arrived at the scene and spoke with the incident command then the vehicle owner to get permission for the equipment recovery. First, we temporarily placed spill containments for the leaking hydraulic fluid. Then we set up the rotator and flatbed recovery truck parallel to the casualty (due to limited road access) and finally set up the crane lift services. Our team installed special straps and frame chains to the truck and trailer so our team could lift the unit underneath some overhead power lines.

Crane Lift Services

As soon as the unit was safely under the powerlines, we installed rigging for a safe catch and uprighting. We worked slowly and carefully with the crane lift services until the unit was safely upright on the roadway. We then temporarily stored our rigging and prepared to secure the truck for towing. Next, we separated the trailer, loaded it onto the flatbed tow truck, and secured it. Meanwhile, our Pro-Enviro team continued handling the spill cleanup and recovery of any debris and contamination.

We returned in the morning to inspect the site and ended up doing considerable small debris cleanup and collecting some additional soil samples. Our team transported the debris and waste to the manifest site and sent the soil samples to the laboratory. We completed the necessary paperwork and waited to see what the soil sample results would be.

Emergency Towing: Taurus Fishing in the Bush

Emergency Towing: Taurus Fishing in the Bush

In this incident, on July 31st, 2020, we received an emergency dispatch about a vehicle trapped in an embankment. We got pictures of the accident and were able to see the car had left the county roadway and embedded in a stream on private property. We headed to the scene with a medium-duty wrecker and a recovery operator to survey the scene and create a recovery plan.

Crane Lift Services

We found that the vehicle’s location in the creek was a downstream pollution risk at the scene, so we needed to work fast. Our recovery plan involved dispatching the heavy-duty rotating crane-style wrecker and any necessary special equipment to minimize creek damage and pollution.

We also worked with the King County Sheriff’s Office to help with traffic control during the closure. While we waited for the closure, our team began setting up the specialty rigging and an overhead rigging kit with straps to avoid damaging the overhead powerlines. With a crane lift services job this complicated and safety-focused, we didn’t rush through the process.

Emergency Towing

The final step was to clear the bush to gain safe access. Once everything was set up and ready for emergency towing and recovery, we successfully moved the car back onto the roadway. Not only that, but we did so without any more damage to the creek or vehicle. Once the vehicle was on the road, we disassembled and stowed all the equipment to its original location for later reconditioning. The car owner was able to take it back to their property, and our team completed the required paperwork and returned it to the yard.
