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.

Call the Traffic Operations Center (TOC) at 800.379.3701 or 602.527.1563 and ask for Travis Qualls, ADOT's emergency response specialist.
