Idaho Release Reporting Guide
The most important goal of State of Idaho Hazardous Materials Program is life safety. We are working to increase the
preparedness of citizens, and state and local governments for hazardous materials incidents. We assist in raising the
public’s awareness of hazardous materials issues and increase their access to hazardous materials inventory information.
We assist with training and Special Teams throughout the State of Idaho. We serve as an emergency response coordination
and liaison organization for Idaho and work in cooperation with state and federal agencies to prepare for, respond to and
recover from hazardous materials incidents.
The Idaho Office of Emergency Management carries out the requirements of the Federal Emergency Planning and Community Right
to Know Act (EPCRA), as well as the Idaho Hazardous Substance Emergency Response Act. We are the state repository for
regulatory reporting concerning hazardous material storage, transport and release within Idaho to include Tier II’s, Toxic
Release Inventories (TRI’s) and Risk Management Plans (RMP’s). The Bureau is responsible for coordinating with and
assisting Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC’s).
