Toxic gas emissions are the most severe chemical incidents, since chemicals disperse quickly from the source to the site and residential areas. Risk is minimised by design measures, alarm systems, and emergency response planning. Site personnel and people living in the vicinity must be informed and trained on the correct actions to take. The organization for possible incidents consists of a main command and control centre, a forward command centre and the fire brigade.
