Denver HMIS Reporting

The Denver Fire Department’s HMIS program incorporates reporting requirements from:

  • Title III of SARA, the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act, which deals with hazardous materials.
  • EPCRA (Emergency Response Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act).
  • The City and County of Denver’s requirements for hazardous materials operational permits, Denver Fire Code Section 105.6.63. The permit process provides the Denver Fire Department with information on what, where, how, and when specific hazards are being installed, manufactured, stored, and/or used within the City, and allows us to meet the Sara Title III reporting requirements.

The Denver Fire Department’s program is further supported by proposed legislation, which requires that all hazard potential of any chemical must be divulged for first responders and the community to quickly determine risks and assess health and environmental concerns.

Permit Application Requirements

  1. HMIS (Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement) – SARA Title III requires submittal of an HMIS form annually.
  2. HMMP (Hazardous Materials Management Plan) – This is a facility site plan designating locations and amounts of hazards and locations and types of emergency equipment.
