Hazardous materials can come in a variety of forms such as; explosives, flammable and combustible substances, poisons, and radioactive materials. Hazardous material exposure can occur during production, storage, transportation, use, or disposal of these materials. You and your community are at risk if a chemical is used unsafely or released in harmful amounts into the environment where you live, work, or play.
Many communities have Local Emergency Planning Committees whose responsibilities include collecting information about hazardous materials. For more information on our Local Emergency Planning Committee call (410) 222-0600 or email [email protected]
