Sign up today for DEQ's SARA Title III Tier Two Workshops!

1/18/05 - Watermark Country Club, Grand Rapids
1/20/05 - Hotel Baronette, Novi

What would happen if a chemical emergency occurred at your facility?
Is your community prepared to respond?  The hazardous chemical
reporting
requirements in Title III of the Superfund Amendments and
Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA Title III), also known as the
Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, can be a vital
link
to your community's safety.

This half-day workshop is designed for owners, operators, and
environmental and safety personnel of facilities that have hazardous
materials on site.

Tier Two hazardous chemical inventory reports are required under SARA
Title III. Over 6,000 facilities in Michigan annually submit this
report
to the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), Local Emergency
Planning Committees (LEPCs), and local fire departments.  Nearly 3,000
facilities are subject to emergency planning notification under SARA
Title III.  All facilities are subject to one or more of the 26 state
and federal regulations that contain chemical release reporting
requirements.

Attend this workshop to find out about the latest changes to the
regulations, and learn how to report and avoid costly penalties while
protecting the first responder, the community, and the environment.
Participants will receive the "Michigan Facilities' Guide to SARA
Title III, Emergency Planning & Release Reporting."
The registration fee of $50 includes continental breakfast and
workshop
materials.
