A COMMUNITY MODEL FOR HANDLING HAZARDOUS MATERIALS AND TRANSPORTATION EMERGENCIES. FINAL REPORT ON PHASE 1
The report develops models for local communities for handling hazardous materials transportation emergencies and puts them into a separate manual in step-by-step "how to" format. The models were tested on two communities, at each end of their intended population range. The models were easy to apply and appeared to give reasonable and meaningful results. A review of a sample of 27 states' laws leads to the conclusion that states are currently wrestling with the many facets of the problem but there is no unity.
