Asbestos in Wet Environmental If a building is already down or partially collapsed due to flooding, the site must be secured, and posted with asbestos warning signs, and the suspect asbestos containing material be sorted out and sampled.

Burned Debris May Contain Asbestos Debris pile from burned homes could contain asbestos. Contractors cleaning up debris from burned debris should take steps to protect themselves. Burned asbestos will look different from fresh ones, and even the optical property as examed by microscope will change. So the contractors should be careful to take every suspect material and not to miss any.

Fire May Spread Asbestos and Contaminate the Surroundings On August 11, 1999, a fire burned a site at 27 Bushnell Hollow Road in Sprague, Connecticut and the interior, roof, doors and windows of the abandoned facility were all burned out. The fire spread asbestos roofing material and asbestos pipe insulation to areas nearly 6 miles downwind from the site. Sampling of roofing and other material by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP), indicated presence of asbestos at concentrations as high as 60%.

Knowing this, it's neccesary assess a boundary to the fire and to collect asbestos and asbestos-containing debris from the areas that are within the bounday
