The owner or operator may develop one contingency plan which meets all regulatory requirements. The EPA recommends that the plan be based on the national response team's (NRT) integrated contingency plan guidance. When modifications are made to non-hazardous waste provisions in an integrated contingency plan, the changes do not trigger the need for a hazardous waste license modification.
NR 664.0052(3) (3) The plan shall describe arrangements agreed to by local police departments, fire departments, hospitals, contractors and state and local emergency response teams to coordinate emergency services, pursuant to s. NR 664.0037.
NR 664.0052(4) (4) The plan shall list names, addresses and phone numbers (office and home) of all persons qualified to act as emergency coordinator (see s. NR 664.0055), and this list shall be kept up to date. Where more than one person is listed, one shall be named as primary emergency coordinator and others shall be listed in the order in which they will assume responsibility as alternates. For new facilities, this information shall be supplied to the department at the time of certification, rather than at the time of feasibility and plan of operation report submittal.
NR 664.0052(5) (5) The plan shall include a list of all emergency equipment at the facility (such as fire extinguishing systems, spill control equipment, communications and alarm systems (internal and external) and decontamination equipment), where this equipment is required. This list shall be kept up to date. In addition, the plan shall include the location and a physical description of each item on the list, and a brief outline of its capabilities.
NR 664.0052(6) (6) The plan shall include an evacuation plan for facility personnel where there is a possibility that evacuation could be necessary. This plan shall describe the signal or signals to be used to begin evacuation, evacuation routes and alternate evacuation routes (in cases where the primary routes could be blocked by releases of hazardous waste or fires).
