A custom report in your preferred format can be mailed or emailed to you by first completing the CR2K Information Request form. Examples of customer reports include:  Facilities Reporting Specified Substance; facilities and the substance they reported for a specified county; facilities reporting for a specified city or zip code.

The Hazardous Substance Searchable Database will require you to register/login.  If you registered prior to it being temporarily removed from service, you will still be registered.  Your username is your email address.  Your password is limited to seven characters.  If you enter more than that when registering, the program will only remember the first seven characters you entered.
 

4. Hazardous Substance Information System Software (Last updated 9/30/14)

The Hazardous Substance Information System (HSIS) is available as a Microsoft Access software application. The HSIS software is interactive and contains data from the Hazardous Substance Information Survey. The software includes facility demographic and facility-specific chemical data (including quantity and storage). On-screen help, preset queries and a manual assist users in accessing the information.

Confidential Information

Some of the information reported by facilities is confidential. There are two versions of the HSIS software. The Fire Version is available to fire service personnel and other emergency responders. The Public Version is available to the public with the confidential information removed. For more on confidential information, click on the following link: ConfidentialInformationOverview.pdf.

HSIS Software Access Options

The HSIS software is available by internet download or on CD. A CR2K Information Request form must be completed and submitted to access the HSIS information. Those requesting internet download receive a username and passwor​d. Once you have a username and password, return to this website and open the HSIS Instructions for system requirements of H​SIS, and uninstalling, extraction, and saving instructions. If you request the software on CD, the instructions will be included on the CD. CDs will be sent by regular mail.

 5. HSIS CAMEO-Ready Data Files

The Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations (CAMEO) Suite assists emergency responders and planners with hazardous substance planning. The program is available for free from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website at http://www.epa.gov/osweroe1/content/cameo/cameo.htm.
 
The OSFM creates CAMEO files containing data from the Hazardous Substance Information Survey. These data files can be imported directly into the CAMEO database.
Emergency responders and planners may request CAMEO-ready data files by completing the CR2K Information Request form. Specify on your request if you want the data for a particular Hazmat Team, Fire District, county, zip code, or if you want statwide data.

Hazardous Substance Incidents

Since January 1, 1985, the OSFM has collected Hazardous Substance Incident Reports from emergency responders. HazSub incident information is available in the following ways:

 

1. Hazardous Substance Incident Searchable Database

The Hazardous Substance Incident Searchable Database shows hazardous substance incidents reported from 1986 through 2009. This database displays key information pertaining to incidents. 

2. Excel Spreadsheets

For incidents occurring after 2009, they will be saved into a Excel spreadsheet for the year. The spreadsheets are sorted sorted by City, Zip code, Incident Street Name, and then Incident Street Number.  Current year data is updated on a monthly basis. 

 

3. Incidents On CD

Complete the CR2K Information Request form to request a CD of all hazardous substance incidents. The CD will contain a Microsoft Access database of incidents reported 1986 through 12/31/2009, plus the separate Excel spreadsheets of incidents reported in 2010 and each year thereafter, to date.

 

4. Portable Document Format (pdf)

A pdf of a Hazardous Substance Incident Report can be mailed or emailed to you.  Please complete the CR2K Information Request form to request a copy of a specific Hazardous Materials Incident Report.​  If you know the Incident number, Incident Date, Incident County, and Agency Responding, please include that information as these are helpful in searching for an incident.

 

5. Custom Report

A custom report of incidents can be provided in your preferred format by first completing and submitting the CR2K Information Request form.  The reverse side of the form allows you to select the fields you would like included in the report.
