AB 3777 was enacted in 1986 to minimize potential emergencies involving acutely hazardous materials by requiring facilities which handle these materials to submit Risk Management Prevention Plans.
Risk Management Plans are one of the cornerstones of the Accidental Release Program. Similar to a Business Plan, an RMP will list the equipment and procedures that will be used to prevent, mitigate, and abate releases of CalARP materials. Additional requirements for RMPs include the listing of spill prediction worst-case scenarios, possible effects on the surrounding community, and comprehensive emergency procedures.
For more information about the CalARP please contact the Tulare County Environmental Health Division and ask to speak with a CUPA inspector or visit the California Office of Emergency Services for more information on this program.
