  • Directory of Federal Information Resources for Emergency Planning and Response (August 1989).
All are available online at www.bts.gov/smart/cat/254.html or at the National Service Center for Environmental Publications (NSCEP) 800-490-9198.

 

The Comprehensive HAZMAT Emergency Response-Capability Assessment Program (CHER-CAP) is offered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to assist local communities and Tribal Governments in obtaining a greater understanding of HAZMAT risks, identifying planning deficiencies, updating plans, training first responders, and stimulating and testing the system for strengths and needed improvements.
