Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance (HSEES)

The Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance (HSEES) system is a computerized database used to monitor the acute public health consequences of emergency hazardous substance releases into the environment. The system does not study chronic human health effects or the non-human effects of these releases. HSEES is used to describe the morbidity and mortality experienced by employees, responders, and the general public that results from hazardous substance emergency events. The system documents all reportable hazardous substance releases in the state except for those involving only petroleum products (for example, natural gas, propane, jet fuel, and gasoline). HSEES events can occur at fixed facilities or during transportation.
