Hazardous Materials Reporting

Required Information

Facilities within SMFRA’s jurisdiction containing hazardous materials in excess of those in the table below are required to report to the Arapahoe/Douglas Hazmat Team via their web application (https://apps.douglas.co.us/apps/hazmat).  This information is used to aid emergency crews responding to a facility during a fire, release, or exposure involving hazardous materials.  It is also used by SMFRA to aid in determining whether your facility is in compliance with the International Fire Code.

Classifying hazardous materials is the responsibility of the business owner or their designee.  If you need assistance classifying hazardous materials in your facility, you may refer to the Material Safety Data Sheets or consult with a professional such as a fire protection engineer or an industrial hygienist.
