History and Purpose
The Community Right to Know (CRTK) program was enacted in 1980 as the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). In 1986, CERCLA was expanded and refined with the Superfund Amendments and Re-authorization Act (SARA). A critical part known as SARA Title III, the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPRCRA) greatly affects the safety of citizens and emergency responders throughout the country.
The State of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) and the State of Alaska Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, Division of Emergency Services (ADES) help communities meet program requirements. The Municipality Of Anchorage provides resources from the Anchorage Fire Department and Office of Emergency Management for the Anchorage LEPC who together have created a model program of risk management and personnel safety.
All facilities within the geographic boundaries of the Municipality Of Anchorage are required to evaluate the hazard of the chemicals, and any substances or materials, used stored or sold on their site and file a Tier II form annually to the Anchorage Fire Department with a copy to ADEC. Alaska State Statute Title 29 outlines the requirements and establishes the authority for the Municipality of Anchorage in implementing a CRTK program. Anchorage Municipal Code Chapter 16 outlines the reporting requirements for the Municipality Of Anchorage.
