Tier II Reporting

497 011

Tier II Report Forms are due annually by March 1 from facilities meeting the reporting requirements.

SARA Title III was enacted by U.S. Congress in 1986 in response to an incident in India in which 2500 people were killed by a chemical release. The purpose behind SARA Title III/EPCRA has been to create a cooperative relationship among government, business, and the public involving all of them in the effort to prevent, to plan, to prepare for, and to manage chemical emergencies.

This law sets requirements for facilities that manufacture, process, or store certain hazardous or toxic chemicals, of certain threshold level, on-site. They must report annually to the state and local governments any accidental releases on a timely basis. The information submitted by facilities provided the basis for community right-to-know and local emergency planning and preparedness.

Businesses have to report if they store or possess hazardous chemicals in reportable quantities.  For more information about Tier II reporting, please go to the following website: http://www.epa.gov/emergencies/content/lawsregs/epcraover.htm

New Ladder Truck

Ladder-Truck-Photo-One

Madisonville Fire Department begin looking for ways to replace its 1987 102' Rear Mount Ladder truck a few years back. The truck had numerous mechanical problems and was a open cab vehicle, which posed a serious risk to firefighters. Due to the overwhelming cost of this truck, the fire department applied for a AFG Assistance to Firefighters Grant. The AFG grant was turned down 5 years in a row.  In 2013 the AFG allowed vehicle grants to be applied for as a regional grant.

MFD decided to apply for this using the regional approach. It took into account all the run volume, vehicles, and staffing for the entire county.  In late 2013 MFD was awarded its AFG grant for $1,100,000 for its new ladder truck. It was also awarded $25,000 for additional NFPA required equipment, for the truck. MFD members looked at several different options for a new truck. It was determined that a Mid-Mount truck would best suit our needs.
