The EPA’s role in an emergency
When there is a major pollution event, the EPA will:
- provide technical and scientific information and advice to emergency and recovery services
- provide sampling and monitoring during emergency events
- deploy incident air monitoring equipment at emergency services’ request
- report and give advice on the environmental impacts and health risks associated with pollution and waste (such as smoke and poor water quality).
