Emergency Response Program

How Will a Release Be Handled?

The City will put its Emergency Response Program into action if a release occurs as follows:
  • Wind monitor to determine down wind area
  • Dayton Fire Department computer generated program to determine potentially impacted area down wind of the facility
  • Chlorine and methane gas alarms
  • Activation of pre-emergency planning with the Regional HazMat Team, Dayton Fire Department, Montgomery Greene Local Emergency Response Commission, and the surrounding community
  • Gas scrubbers construction in 1999 for neutralizing 100% of the released chlorine gas
  • Monitored 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
