Our state EMO provides that service, there are many small piles,
mostly at universities and medical facilities where this is a cash cow.
Lets face it however, if you're getting a detectable reading from the
little beta patch on the box on low scale, your readings on the
scales are: yeah, warm, hot and GTFO! A survey meter is a fire alarm,
If the highest scale is showing considerable reading, its time to get
out of there and call Hazmat in the bunny suits. Our usages are
mostly to confirm a leak at a truck or rail crash. If it's a yes,
then we back off and let the pros take over.
