SARA Title III
SARA Title III: The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA)
SARA Title III establishes requirements for Federal, State and local governments, Indian Tribes, and industry regarding emergency planning and Community Right-to-Know reporting on hazardous and toxic chemicals. The Community Right-to-Know provisions help increase the public and first responders' knowledge of chemicals at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment. States and communities, working with facilities, can use the information to improve chemical safety and protect public health and the environment.

Submitting a Tier2 Report to Berrien County LEPC
The Berrien County Sheriff's Office, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division, assists the LEPC by accepting Tier 2 reports and presenting them to the LEPC for planning purposes. It is recommended that industry professionals first report their chemicals in inventory to the DEQ, through their proprietary service. That service gives users the ability to generate an electronic Tier 2 report.
Electronic versions of a Tier 2 report may be emailed to Dep. David Albers, Homeland Security Planner, at [email protected].
