Hazardous Materials Business/Response Plans

The hazardous materials business program ensures that accurate information is available so that communities may be informed regarding the hazardous materials that are handled and/or stored at a business. Each business that handles 55 gallons or more of a liquid, 500 pounds or more of a solid, or 200 cubic feet or more of a compressed gas, or any quantity of an Acutely Hazardous Material (AHM) must establish a business plan for emergency response to a release or threatened release of a hazardous material. The CUPA provides this information to emergency rescue personnel.

This program consists of:

  • Permitting, Inspection and Enforcement
  • Madera County Hazardous Materials Response Plan
