Guard surveys standby generators in WTC 5

Preventing Spills

RICH GARLOCK: This is the emergency generator fuel for standby generators in WTC 5 — two 10,000-gallon diesel tanks completely intact. Diesel storage for the emergency generators located on the B-6 level, west of Tower One were also found intact. The Environmental Protection Agency was able to remove the diesel from those as well. We didn't want to have a fuel spill, and we wanted to take every precaution to eliminate these threats before a contractor went in and demolished the building.
