Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness
(HMEP) Grant Program
The purpose of HMEP is to increase State, Territorial, Tribal, and local effectiveness in safely and efficiently handling hazardous materials accidents and incidents, enhance implementation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA), and encourage a comprehensive approach to emergency training and planning by incorporating the unique challenges of responses to transportation situations. This is accomplished in large part through the HMEP grant program that provides financial and technical assistance, as well as national direction and guidance, to enhance local hazardous materials emergency planning and training.
We have 30 topics of classes that we provide to include Hazardous Materials, Trench Rescue, Confined Space Rescue, Pipeline Emergencies, Oil Spill, and Air Monitoring.
These courses are provided free of charge all over the state and many are eligible for TCOLE credit. Our goal is to get every first responder (police, fire, EMS, public works) in the state to the level of HazMat First Responder-Operations (which consists of completing the HazMat Awareness class and then the Operations class, which provides enough information to identify HazMat situations, secure the scene, ensuring scene safety, and calling for technicians on a HazMat Team to respond). TCOLE credit would be provided through TEEX, which is our contract training provider.
