SECTION 610.10 PURPOSE
Section 610.10 Purpose
a) These rules establish the specific coordination activities which shall take place between business and a local geographical jurisdiction's emergency preparedness planning and emergency response agencies as they relate to the initial development and annual review of chemical safety contingency plans and procedures. They are designed to ensure that a local geographical jurisdiction's planning and response personnel and business representatives are fully knowledgeable of each organization's capabilities and are prepared to respond to the release of chemical substances into the environment. Although these rules promote the development of local governmental chemical safety planning and response capabilities, they are in no way designed to inhibit or in any way discourage the use of local intergovernmental mutual aid pacts or agreements.
b) In addition, these rules prescribe the method and procedures for providing notice to the Illinois Emergency Services and Disaster Agency required under Section 4 of the Illinois Chemical Safety Act (ILL. Rev. Stat. 1985, ch. 111˝, pars. 951 et. seq.).
