There are currently four ways to access hazardous substance information from the Office of State Fire Marshal's Community Right To Know Program. 1) Facility Substance Report (by request), 2) Custom Report (by request), 3) Hazardous Substance Searchable Database, and 4) Hazardous Substance Information System Software (HSIS, by request, then downloadable from this website).
1. Facility Substance Report(pdf)
A pdf of a Facility Substance Report can be emailed, mailed, or faxed to you by first completing the CR2K Information Request
2. Custom Report
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.
3. Hazardous Substance Searchable Database
(Last Update 12/5/16)
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 12/14/16)
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.
The HSIS reflects different data each time the HSIS is distributed because the data is based on the Hazardous Substance Information Survey. Surveys are mailed throughout the year, according to the county the facility is located in.
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 password. Once you have a username and password, return to this website and open the HSIS Instructions for system requirements of HSIS, 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/cameo
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 statewide data
If you have questions about any of these tools, please email the Information Assistant at email@example.com, or call the information request line at 503.934.8353. Thank you.
