The Area Plan program is a planning tool for local government agencies to respond to and minimize impacts from a release or threatened release of hazardous material. It requires local CUPAs to create a plan that:
The local Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) is responsible for developing the plan in coordination with local emergency response agencies. The Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (OES) is the oversight agency for the Area Plan program. The City of San Leandro Environmental Services Section is the CUPA for incorporated San Leandro. The City of San Leandro contracts with the Alameda County Fire Department for hazardous materials response services
How does the CUPA identify hazardous materials in the community?
The CUPA collects information from businesses that handle hazardous material through the Hazardous Materials Business Plan (HMBP) and California Accidental Release Prevention (CalARP) programs, which require detailed reporting from businesses and inspection of businesses by the CUPA. This information provides the basis for the Area Plan and is used to determine the appropriate level of emergency planning to respond to a release.
