Scope of Work:
On a cold and rainy day between Christmas and New Year, O’ROURKE’S Emergency Response Crews were called to assist with a response to a multiple boat fire in Dayton, KY. The fire destroyed (2) large recreational boats, rendered (2) recreational boats inoperable and released over 400 gallons of gasoline, oil and other petroleum base liquids into a marina that contains over 200 boats.
O’ROURKE responded with work boats, containment boom, adsorbent pads/booms and many other “tools of the trade” to ensure the petroleum did not make it to the Ohio River. The sunken boats were removed from the marina, the debris was scooped from the water and the petroleum was adsorbed from the surface of the water.
O’ROURKE crews and strategic subcontractors were onsite for (5) days working closely with the local Fire Department, the Fire Investigative Team, the EMA, the U.S. Coast Guard, the County Coroner, the marina owner and each of the associated insurance companies. Upon completion of the response, O’ROURKE worked with the insurance companies to dispose of both boats as well as disposal of all pads, boom and debris generated during the response.
