Chemical Safety and Reporting

North Carolina Emergency Management works with local governments, industry, and residents to mitigate and manage hazardous materials incidents following guidelines outlined in the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) and the Clean Air Act. These laws require companies to report certain threshold quantities of chemicals for use by first responders, residents, the state, and local government. The collaboration created through these reports opens channels for communities to be informed and better prepare for chemical hazards.

Information Requests

EPCRA empowers citizens with information about the hazardous substances being stored and produced in their communities. Citizens can make targeted requests for information about substances near where they live and work by emailing Julia Jarema, Public Information Officer with North Carolina Emergency Management, at Julia.Jarema@ncdps.gov. For security reasons, blanket requests for information cannot be fulfilled. Click here for additional guidance for public information requests.

State Emergency Response Commission

The North Carolina State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) was established by EPCRA to oversee elements of emergency planning, mitigation, response, and recovery within the state. The initial focus of the SERC was hazardous materials preparedness, and while the SERC maintains this function, it also now serves in an advisory capacity to the Secretary of the Department of Public Safety, who serves as the State Administrative Agent (SAA) to coordinate activities of the North Carolina State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) and the Domestic Preparedness Regions (DPR).
