E-Plan Tier II Reporting

The Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency oversees Fulton County’s Tier II Program. Tier II reporting is required by the State of Georgia Environmental Protection Division covered by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act requirements. All companies that exceed allowable thresholds of certain chemicals must submit an Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Form to the Local Emergency Planning Committee, the State Emergency Response Commission, and the local fire department annually.

Georgia now requires all reporting to be electronic utilizing E-Plan. Please see Georgia’s instructions at: https://epd.georgia.gov/emergency-response.

To contact the Tier II program manager or report a hazardous material release, call the Georgia Environmental Protection Division at 404-387-4900 or visit their webpage at https://epd.georgia.gov.

What is E-Plan?
E-Plan is the nation’s largest database of chemical and facility hazards, with over 200,000 Tier II and 17,500 facilities from across the nation in one database. E-Plan was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Emergency Management in collaboration with the University of Texas at Dallas. It is a means of collecting chemical facility reporting information and addressing federal regulations regarding chemicals in the community.
