Environmental Assistance Program

Geographic Response Plans enable emergency response personnel and support agencies to evaluate hazardous materials emergencies and take appropriate emergency actions in order to save lives, reduce injuries, and prevent or minimize damage to property and the environment.

If this is an Emergency involving a release or threatened release of hazardous materials, petroleum products, or other contaminants impacting public health and/or the environment

Most important – Protect yourself and others!

Then:

  1. Turn to the Immediate Action Guide (Yellow Tab of the Geographic Response Plan) for initial steps taken in a hazardous material, petroleum product, or other contaminant emergency.
  2. Make the initial notification to Dispatch by dialing 911. Dispatch will make the Mandatory Notifications.
