Emergency Response Program

The Emergency Response Program minimizes the impact of spills and releases to the environment and ensures proper cleanup.

Emergency Response is available to respond 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with on-scene coordinators (OSCs) available to help first responders address environmental emergencies and pollution incidents, including chemical and petroleum spills. Statewide, Ohio EPA records more than 5,000 incident reports annually through calls to our emergency response spill hotline from citizens, companies, law enforcement, emergency responders and other agencies.

Report spills and environmental emergencies to Ohio EPA 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at 800-282-9378. Report non- emergency complaints to the appropriate district office.
