Oregon is a one-stop-shop for hazardous substance reporting. By completing your Annual Hazardous Substance Inventory report in CHS Manager you have fulfilled your obligation to report. The LEPC, Fire Department and EPA all have access to the information you have provided in your report. We have worked diligently to streamline the process for facilities to more efficiently report their hazardous substance storage, and distribute the information to all agencies privy to the information.
The State Fire Marshal's office works directly and indirectly with your local fire department and responding hazmat team to ensure our first responders are informed and prepared to respond in the event of a hazardous substance incident. We also work with the Oregon State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) and the Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) in the planning for emergency responses.These collaborations benefit all of Oregon with better planning and preparedness for a quick and efficient response in an emergency situation.
