Local governments are responsible for integrating hazardous materials planning and response within their jurisdictions. This includes:

  • Ensuring the local hazard analysis adequately addresses hazardous materials incidents;
  • Incorporating planning for hazardous materials incidents into the local and tribal emergency plan and annexes;
  • Assessing developing hazardous materials response capability using local resources, mutual aid and contractors;
  • Training responders; and Exercising the Plan.

It also suggests that communities adopt land use policies on the siting of facilities with hazardous materials in order to reduce risk.
