HAZMAT/Tier II

 

TIER II

To submit a Tier II form digitally to LEPC #12, please email the file to Victoria Levite vlevite@trorc.org.  Paper copies can be sent to LEPC #12 c/o TRORC, 128 King Farm Road, Woodstock, VT 05091. It is highly recommended that these forms be sent digitally using the CAMEO software file. 

All facilities that use or possess certain hazardous substances (including petroleum products) or chemicals that exceed the minimum reporting threshold quantity are required under the Vermont Community Right-to-Know Program and the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) to complete a Tier II inventory form and submit it annually to the state’s Hazardous Materials Compliance Officer.  All reporting facilities and transporters are also encouraged to participate in the LEPC.  Our meetings are usually the third Thursdays of even months.  You can find the meeting notice at http://www.lepc12.org/calendar/

Hazardous materials that require reporting include lethal chemicals, but also common substances such as fuel, and even sand, salt, or sawdust if in large quantities. To see what the list of substances is and the reporting threshold, or to contact the state office, go to the VT HAZMAT Compliance Tier II Program using the link below.  EPCRA has reporting requirements and Vermont has its own requirements.

HAZMAT (Hazardous Materials)

Responders always need to be constantly aware that hazardous materials (HAZMAT) may be present at incidents. The most common HAZMAT at emergency scenes in Vermont is a petroleum product.

All Hazmat spills/leaks or potential dangerous spills/leaks should be reported to 9-1-1 for immediate response, and then within the hour to both the 24-hour Hazardous Materials Spills Hotline at 1-800-641-5005, as well as to the National Response Center at 1-800-424-8802.
