Having an Emergency Response Plan is the cornerstone of emergency management. Your company probably has an Emergency Response Plan in place already or at least has formulated safety procedures appropriate to your line of business.  Best practices in Safety and Hazard planning is an ongoing effort aimed at lowering the incident of, and minimizing the impact accidents can have on people’s lives and property. Measures such as effective building and engineering codes can protect property from natural hazards such as earthquake and fire. Driver safety and DOT training can lessen the danger when transporting hazardous materials.

Federal legislation signed into law in 2000 requires that all local agencies have a local Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan needs to be in place within the local agency to be eligible for both pre- and post-disaster federal funding. Municipalities’ local hazard mitigation plans generally place an emphasis on pre-event risk reduction by identifying problematic areas throughout their service area.

A community can be at risk from hazardous materials that are routinely stored in homes, buildings, businesses, and other property. Sometimes people dispose of these materials unsafely, whether through ignorance or to avoid the inconvenience of properly disposing of them.

Many types of hazardous materials are being transported across the country daily on the nation's highways, railroads, waterways and pipelines. Chemical manufacturers are one source of hazardous materials, but there are many others, including service stations, hospitals, labs and hazardous materials waste sites.

With all that storage and movement, it’s inevitable that there will be accidents - major and minor - involving dangerous chemicals on a fairly regular basis. Spilled or leaking hazardous materials can not only cause severe injuries to persons in the immediate area, they can also pose a severe risk of environmental and property damage to the surrounding area.
