Faster Response Time
Our response times are among the lowest in the industry, significantly shorter than the industry standard of two hours. First Call focuses on beating all industry standards. In fact, this is a part of what we call the “First Call Difference”. A fast response time in conjunction with an accurate assessment and fast and effective containment allow us to limit our customer’s liability and save them money.

Lower Total Cost
The sooner a spill is contained, the less liability and total cost your company could potentially face. First Call responds with in house personnel immediately to assess and contain the situation and begin the remediation/restoration process as soon as possible. With consistent communication and through the use of leading edge technology, our customers remain informed and involved in the project from start to finish allowing our performance to be in line with our customer’s budget.
