Being prepared is just as important for businesses as it is for individuals in the community. Being ready for a disaster may make the difference for you if you want to stay in business after a serious emergency or disaster.
IMPORTANT: Any organization or business that uses, manufactures, stores, or transports hazardous materials is required to have procedures for safe handling of these materials as well as emergency response procedures. In addition, if you use or generate hazardous chemicals above certain quantities, you are required to report to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)
. This group focuses on hazards assessment and mitigation for our area.
Please contact Spokane County Emergency Management
if you have specific questions about hazard mitigation and/or business preparedness.
