Belintra, assistance 7 days a week, 24 hours a day
Belintra (Belgian Incidents with Transport of hazardous substances) is a system whereby the chemical sector commits to providing specialised assistance to firefighters and civil protection services in the event of transport accidents involving chemical products. Experts from some forty companies are available day and night, 7 days a week, even if they themselves are not involved.
Through Belintra, the emergency services have access to expert advice and specialist equipment to clean up chemical products in a fast, efficient and safe way in road or rail transport accidents. Belintra exists since 1998 and is a collaboration between the federal government and the chemical industry.
