Environmental Emergency Plans

Penn State has a variety of plans that address facilities that store fuels, oils, and hazardous materials.  The purpose of these plans is to describe measures to prevent spills and releases from occurring and to prepare for an effective, safe, and timely response to mitigate the impacts of a spill/release.

In addition to fulfilling regulatory requirements, these plans serve as a reference for oil and hazardous materials storage requirements, as a tool to communicate practices on preventing and responding to spills/discharges with employees, as a guide for inspections, and as a resource during emergency response.
