Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) Chemical Reporting
Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) Reporting Requirements
As required by the International Fire Code (IFC) adopted by the Town of Castle Rock, all businesses within the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department jurisdiction shall report their chemicals (HAZMAT) on the Douglas County Hazardous Materials website.
These actions will ensure you are in compliance with the reporting requirements outlined in the IFC. These mandatory reporting requirements are needed for emergency planning and preparedness, community right to know reporting, and to assist the firefighters when responding to emergencies at your facility.
