The EH&S has a Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Program that provides technical assistance to chemical, radioactive, or biological emergencies. The Team members are properly trained as required by law, and have an emergency van containing necessary supplies and equipment to respond to calls on a 24 hour basis. The program is supported by approximately 20 safety professionals.
To ensure effective response to emergency situations the Responder will respond to campus or hospital emergency situations by initial phone consultation, followed by site visit if needed.
The HAZMAT Emergency Response Team (ERT) works in tandem with city, state, and federal regulatory agencies, providing mutual aid as needed.
In case of a hazardous materials incident, call the UC Police Department Emergency telephone number (9-911) and they in turn will page the on-call Responder.
