Hazardous Substance Information System (HSIS) Software

The Hazardous Substance Information System (HSIS) database 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.

Secured Information

Some of the information reported by facilities is confidential and secured. 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 and secured information removed. For more on secured and confidential information, click on the following link: Secured Information Overview.

HSIS Software Access Options

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

HSIS CAMEO-Ready Data Files

The Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations (CAMEO) Suite assists emergency responders and planners with hazardous material 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 Districtectly into the CAMEO database.

Emergency responders and planners may request CAMEO-ready data files by completing the Hazardous Materials Information Request form. Specify on your request if you want the data for a particular Hazmat Team, Fire District, county, zip code, or statwide.
