Effective emergency response
Praxair security commitments are reflected in programs such as the Local Emergency Assistance Program (LEAP). This technology minimizes the consequences of emergency situations by responding to customer emergencies in an instant, safe and effective manner.
Through the Local Emergency Assistance Program (LEAP), our professional safety and environmental services and customer service staff will resolve all issues quickly and safely. Praxair's North American Local Emergency Assistance Program (LEAP) network includes more than 150 trained supervisors, regional managers, and technical representatives to assist with emergencies.

The Local Emergency Assistance Program (LEAP) works with the Chemical Transportation Emergency Center (CHEMTREC) established by the American Chemistry Council and trains local police and fire departments. To learn about the program, call 1-800-645-4633 or a nearby Praxair agency.
