subch. D of ch. NR 665 Subchapter D — Contingency Plan and Emergency Procedures
NR 665.0050 NR 665.0050 Applicability. This subchapter applies to owners and operators of all hazardous waste facilities, except as s. NR 665.0001 provides otherwise.
NR 665.0050 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06.
NR 665.0051 NR 665.0051Purpose and implementation of contingency plan.
NR 665.0051(1)(1)The owner or operator shall have a contingency plan for the facility. The contingency plan shall be designed to minimize hazards to human health or the environment from fires, explosions or any unplanned sudden or non-sudden release of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents to air, soil or surface water.
NR 665.0051(2) (2)The provisions of the plan shall be carried out immediately whenever there is a fire, explosion or release of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents which could threaten human health or the environment.
NR 665.0051 History History: CR 05-032: cr. Register July 2006 No. 607, eff. 8-1-06.
NR 665.0052 NR 665.0052 Content of contingency plan.
NR 665.0052(1)(1)The contingency plan shall describe the actions facility personnel must take to comply with ss. NR 665.0051 and 665.0056 in response to fires, explosions or any unplanned sudden or non-sudden release of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents to air, soil or surface water at the facility.
NR 665.0052(2) (2)If the owner or operator has already prepared a spill prevention, control and countermeasures (SPCC) plan according to 40 CFR part 112, or some other emergency or contingency plan, the owner or operator need only amend that plan to incorporate hazardous waste management provisions that are sufficient to comply with the requirements of this chapter. The owner or operator may develop one contingency plan which meets all regulatory requirements. The department 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 665.0052(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 665.0037.
NR 665.0052(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 665.0055), 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.
NR 665.0052(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 665.0052(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).

NR 665.0056(4)(b)6. 6. The possible hazards to human health or the environment, outside the facility.
NR 665.0056(5) (5)During an emergency, the emergency coordinator shall take all reasonable measures necessary to ensure that fires, explosions and releases do not occur, recur or spread to other hazardous waste at the facility. These measures shall include, where applicable, stopping processes and operations, collecting and containing released waste and removing or isolating containers.
NR 665.0056(6) (6)If the facility stops operations in response to a fire, explosion or release, the emergency coordinator shall monitor for leaks, pressure buildup, gas generation or ruptures in valves, pipes or other equipment, wherever this is appropriate.
NR 665.0056(7) (7)Immediately after an emergency, the emergency coordinator shall provide for treating, storing or disposing of recovered waste, contaminated soil or surface water or any other material that results from a release, fire or explosion at the facility.
