Sharing Chemical Safety Information with Medical Facilities

Current federal law requires facilities with significant inventories of hazardous chemicals on site to notify the local fire department of the existence and location of those chemicals. Similarly, local medical facilities should be notified of the storage of significant amounts of toxic chemicals so that they may plan for mass casualty events involving those chemicals.
