Emergency Notification Guidelines

SARA Title III Emergency Release Reporting
In the event of a hazardous substance release equal to or exceeding the minimum reportable quantity set in the regulation, Section 304 of the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) requires facilities to:
  • Provide an immediate emergency notification to the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) and the Local Emergency Planning Committee(s) (LEPC) for any area likely affected by the release.
  • Provide a 304 Substance Release Written Follow-Up Report to the SERC and LEPC(s).
For more information on this requirement, refer to the Oregon Emergency Release Notification Guidance Document.

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requires facilities to provide an emergency notification and a written follow-up report, if there is a release into the environment of a hazardous substance that is equal to or exceeds the minimum reportable quantity set in the regulations.

You may need to call 9-1-1 if the spill or release is in progress.
