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 Bureau of Homeland Security 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).
