When a hazardous material incident/accident or chemical release occurs, a report is typically generated and a copy is filed with the Emergency Management Agency. The report contains information as to what type and quantity of material was released, the location, and the time and date of the incident.
The reports we receive are from fire department personnel responding to the scene of these incidents. The Agency does not have a copy of every hazardous material or chemical release that has occurred in Madison County, since some individuals may not report such events to fire departments or Emergency Management personnel.
Emergency Management’s files contain information dating back to 1979 when the reporting process was initiated. This information has been plotted on a digital map of the county and may be printed as an overlay showing the approximate location of any recorded release within 1 mile of a given point. The report in this format is called an environmental audit.
