October, 2008 – Fire Planning Associates Completes Preplan for I-76 (Schuylkill Expwy)/I-476 (Mid-County Expwy) Interchange

Fire Planning Associates recently completed a pre-emergency plan in our proprietary web-based preplanning software, BLAZEMARK, of the I-76/I-476 interchange for Montgomery County (PA) Public Safety. This interchange has been the scene of several hazardous materials incidents in the past several years. The plan includes numerous annotated photographs, and catalogs previously developed hard copy documents in a manner in which numerous responders to incidents here can access the latest information about the intersection. The plan also provides direct hotlinks to PennDOT traffic cameras that monitor the intersection, allowing personnel to view the situation on-scene while still enroute. The preplan was utilized for the June 30, 2009 hazardous materials truck accident at this intersection.
