Emergency Response Resources

The Emergency Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) and Risk Management Program (RMP) have toxic or flammable extremely hazardous substances that could impact surrounding communities. Due to the hazardous nature, facilities implement chemical accident prevention methods and partner with local responders and Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) to identify the potential effects of a chemical accident, steps the facility is taking to prevent an accident, and plan emergency response procedures should an accident occur.

Support from Responders

Local responders, LEPCs and Regional Response Teams (RRTs) can support facilities to develop their emergency response programs by reviewing their emergency action or response plans, developing and participating in emergency response exercises, or participating in public meetings and providing responder feedback after an accidental release.

Emergency Response and Cleanup Resources

Cleanup Contractor 

A hazardous material or waste release for fixed facilities or transportation involves multiple agencies from local to federal depending on the scale of release and public impact. The State Emergency Response Commission Hazardous Materials Committee collaborated to provide an overview of release, notification, response and cleanup process and the roles and responsibilities of the responsible party.
