Hazardous Substance Spills

Any major spill of a hazardous substance must be reported immediately, first to the Menomonie Fire Department (9-911) and then to the department of Safety and Risk Management Services (X-2258 or X-1793).

During non-business hours (before 8:00 am and after 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and also on weekends and holidays) please call X-2222 to have a university police officer contacted.

Personnel on site should be evacuated from the affected area at once. Seal off the contaminated area to prevent further contamination until the arrival of trained responders.

Persons who may be contaminated by a spill/release are to:

  1. Seek medical attention immediately
  2. Avoid contact with others
  3. Alert responders/emergency personnel of injury
