Poudre Fire Authority has adopted the 2012 International Fire Code, including all chapters that reference Hazardous Materials use and storage. This section requires Hazardous Materials Management Plan (HMMP) reporting for all organizations within the Authority coverage area using or storing hazardous materials. You can file your annual management plan via the form below.
Who Has to File?
You must file an HMMP if you use or store any hazardous material in the quantities defined in this table [PDF].
PFA utilizes the EPA's SARA Title III filing application for HMMP submission. Note that not all organizations that are required to file an HMMP with PFA are required to file SARA Title III Tier 2 paperwork with the EPA. However, those that do can use the same Tier 2 application for both.
Important Information Concerning Changes to Colorado Tier2Submit for Reporting Year (RY) 2015
Changes have been made to the 2015 Tier2Submit software that will be available for download from the EPA in November. Leaving any of the following fields blank will cause your submission to fail validation.
1. “States Field” Tab
a. Company Name
Enter the name of the company that owns or operates the facility. This should match the company name as it appears in the “Facility Name” field. Please continue to include both the company and facility name in the “Facility Name” field and list the company name first.
b. Facility Type
Use the drop down menu to select one of the following facility types that represent the facility: Agriculture, Federal Government, Private Industry, Retail Motor Fuel Outlet, or Other.
c. TRI Reporter
Check this box if the facility is required to submit a Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) report (Section 313 of EPCRA) for the same reporting year.
2. “Location” Tab: In the “County” field, enter the name of the county in which the facility is located.
All Tier II reports must pass validation prior to submittal or will be rejected. To create a validated submission of your Tier II report, you must use “Create Submission” in the File menu. The State will not accept exported Tier II reports.
Steps for submitting:
Step 1: Download the EPA's Tier2 software from the link above and follow their instructions for filling in the required forms. Once complete, choose the "Import/Export" option, check the "All Records" option, and click Export. This will generate a .zip file you will need later.
Step 2: Create an emergency contact roster listing the people who need to be contacted in case of a hazardous materials incident at this location. Save it as a Microsoft Word or PDF document.
Step 3: Create a site plan showing where the hazardous materials are located within the building(s) and property. You may draw and scan the sketch, or use a drawing/drafting program. Save the resulting document as a PDF or a JPEG image.
Step 4: Save your Emergency Management Plan (EMP) as a Microsoft Word or PDF document. If you do not have an EMP, you must contact PFA at 970-416-2891 to learn how to prepare one. PFA will not accept HMMPs without an attached EMP.
Step 5: Complete this form. We will contact you with any questions about your application once your documents and payment are received. Once approved, your information will be shared with PFA's First Responders, but will otherwise be treated as confidential.
Step 6: You may need to file your HMMP information with the EPA depending on the nature and quantity of hazardous materials you are reporting. Contact the EPA if you are unsure as to whether you are required to file.
If you would like to discuss your HMMP submittal with PFA, or if you have questions about filing, please fill out our contact form and a staff member will contact you.
