Emergency Response Services

For transportation system chemical spill events from tankers or cargo trucks, diesel saddle tank releases or abandoned hazardous materials items on right of way, contact the ADOT emergency responders. They will contact and coordinate with other federal, state and local emergency responders as event circumstances require.

If you have been involved in a crash, or are in need of emergency response, please call 9-1-1. For situations in which there is no immediate risk of injury, death, or environmental impact please call 602.257.1563.

The Arizona Ombudsman – Citizens Aide helps you resolve ongoing issues with State Agencies.
