Response Tools for Chemical Spills
Here is a quick guide to many of the most commonly used tools and resources that OR&R offers for chemical spill responders and planners. General emergency responders may also want to refer to the quick list of tools and resources for oil spill response.
- CAMEO® software suite and related programs:
- ALOHA®, a modeling program that estimates hazards after a chemical release.
- CAMEO Chemicals, a database of hazardous chemical datasheets you can use to get response recommendations and predict hazards. Available in online and downloadable versions.
- CAMEOfm, an application to access and manage chemical property and emergency response information.
- MARPLOT®, CAMEO's mapping program.
- RMP*Comp, a program that helps chemical facilities that fall under the RMP rule complete their required offsite consequence analysis.
- Tier2 Submit™, a program that helps chemical facilities meet their Tier II reporting requirements under Sections 311 and 312 of EPCRA.
- Web CAFE, and the desktop CAFE Database, programs to help responders in their assessment of environmental impacts from chemical or oil spills into an aquatic environment.
- Training, training resources for CAMEO.
