The Maine State Emergency Response Commission, Maine Emergency Management Agency and US EPA Region 1 will be conducting an Aloha class on October 2nd, 2012.

This program is an overview of hazards analysis as it relates to emergency planning for extremely hazardous substances (EHS) under The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). The materials and software based on documents published by EPA, NOAA, DOT, and FEMA. The course will focus on airborne releases of toxic chemicals with lethal effects.

ALOHA was developed by the US EPA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to assist emergency planners and responders in supporting community right-to-know activities. It is used by LEPC's, fire departments, chemical facilities, health care facilities, and universities throughout the country and internationally. ALOHA consists of menu-driven, multiple, integrated databases and programs which are ready for entering local information and displaying on area maps.

This class will be held at Maine Emergency Management Agency which is located at 45 Commerce Drive, Augusta, Maine. Lunch will be provided, however any other costs will be the responsibility of the attendee.
