Tools and Resources

Similar to the consolidated Federal Action Plan, the tools and resources below have been organized into five elements:

  • Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations (CAMEO). EPA suite of software applications/tools used to plan for and respond to chemical emergencies.
  • Envirofacts. EPA system that provides search access to multiple environmental databases that may include data on such things as toxic chemical releases, water discharge permit compliance, hazardous waste handling processes, Superfund status, and air emission estimates, among others.
  • Facility Registry Service (FRS). EPA system that provides data about facilities, sites, or places of environmental interest to support EPA's mission of protecting human health and the environment.
  • Training.FEMA.gov. FEMA website offering more than 150 courses to help build critical skills first responders need to function effectively in mass consequence events.
  • Funding Resources. This webpage is a compilation of resources which can help communities improve their SERCs, TERCs, LEPCs, and TEPCs emergency planning and preparedness efforts.
  • Grants.gov. Provides a unified site for interaction between grant applicants and the U.S. Federal agencies that manage grant funds, including information on all available Federal grants specific to chemical safety and security that communities can use for community chemical safety and security planning.
  • Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN). Federal, State, local, tribal, territorial, international, and private sector homeland security partners use HSIN to manage homeland security operations, analyze data, send alerts and notices, and in general, share the information they need to do their jobs.
  • How to Better Prepare Your Community for a Chemical Emergency: A Guide for State, Tribal, and Local Agencies. EPA has developed a factsheet for State/Tribal/local agencies which is a general guide on their roles and responsibilities to protect communities from chemical accidents and ensure they are provided information on chemical risks in their communities
  • Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). FEMA system that provides public safety officials with an effective way to alert and warn the public about serious emergencies using the Emergency Alert System (EAS), Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio, and other public alerting systems from a single interface.
  • Infrastructure Protection Gateway EO 13650 Portal. The IP Gateway Information systems serves as the single interface through which DHS partners can access a large range of integrated infrastructure protection tools and information to conduct comprehensive vulnerability assessments and risk analysis. This, in turn, enables homeland security partners to quickly identify relevant vulnerability and consequence data in support of incident preparedness and response efforts. FSLTT partners can access the DHS Executive Order Portal here.
  • Substance Registry System (SRS). EPA system that provides information about substances that are tracked or regulated by EPA or other sources. It is the authoritative resource for basic information about chemicals, biological organisms, and other substances of interest to EPA and its state and tribal partners. The SRS catalog also provides other federal regulatory information as well as sources of information pertaining to a selected substance. Stakeholders can find detailed instructions on the Chemical Substance Checklist Instructions, made by the Working Group.
  • Toxics Release Inventory (TRI). EPA system that tracks the management of certain toxic chemicals that may pose a threat to human health and the environment through the Emergency Planning Community Right to Know Act Section 313.
  • Training Repository Information. Training of First Responders and Emergency Management stakeholders is critical to saving lives and property. This webpage is designed to assist First Responders, Emergency Management, and associated response personnel in identifying repositories of training sites that have content relevant to addressing chemical incidents.
  • Regulatory Frequent or Critical Violations resource. In October 2016, the Working Group published this resource describing the key items each program found to be its most frequent or, in some cases, most critical violations. While there is an expectation that facilities comply with all regulations, this information highlights areas of chemical security and safety that the regulated community should specifically consider for greater compliance.
  • Facility Registry Service (FRS). EPA system that provides data about facilities, sites, or places of environmental interest to support EPA's mission of protecting human health and the environment.
  • Substance Registry System (SRS). EPA system that provides information about substances that are tracked or regulated by EPA or other sources. It is the authoritative resource for basic information about chemicals, biological organisms, and other substances of interest to EPA and its state and tribal partners.
