In 1994, Glenn Cox, the inventor of The RuptureSeal™ (Saving Environments And Lives), responded to a tanker truck accident on a remote highway of Vancouver Island, Canada, where he was stationed as a police officer. The tanker had overturned and was leaking diesel fuel from a 2 inch rupture. The Department of Environmental Emergency Response had been dispatched, but their response time was going to be 2-3 hours, due to the location. The local fire department (who Mr. Cox was also a member of) responded to the scene, but did not have sufficient equipment to stop the leak.
Shortly after, the Department of Transportation arrived with a backhoe and constructed a dirt berm to stop the spread of fuel to a nearby river. Product continued to spill for 2.5 hours until the Provincial Department of Environmental Emergency Response arrived.MORE ▼
