Thursday September 10, 2015 Maryland Chemical hosted an incredibly informative Open House event to celebrate 25 years of Certified Responsible Distribution. This year’s event was especially unique due to the inclusion of Baltimore City Fire Department HazMat Unit, featuring a Response Capabilities presentation.
Maryland Chemical prides itself on providing leading edge knowledge and best practices when it comes to servicing its customers. Partnering with an authority on the subject of handling hazardous materials further reinforced its commitment to safety, industry best practices and Responsible Distribution.
President Jeanette Glose Partlow had this to say about the event.
“The Joint Open House was a super opportunity for our neighbors in the Fairfield Industrial Park to get to know one another better and to learn about BCFD’s Hazmat response capabilities. Already, industry and emergency responders are collaborating on joint training exercises in the future.”
As an added bonus, in addition to tours of both the Baltimore City Fire Department Facility and Maryland Chemical’s state of the art Child’s Street facilities, attendees also got to see a one of kind of presentation with an FBI expert who discussed various scenarios possible when dealing with an “Active Shooter” situation. The event was well attended, lunch and refreshments in addition to raffle prizes were enjoyed by all.
