Hazardous Materials Business Emergency Plan

The owner or operator of any business or entity in the City of Corona that handles a hazardous material above threshold quantities is required, by State and Federal laws, to submit a Hazardous Materials Emergency Business Plan to the local Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA).  The Corona Fire Department administers this program for City of Corona business owners and operators.


Hazardous Materials Business Emergency Plan

Federal, State and local laws, require that a hazardous materials Business Emergency Plan (BEP) must be submitted by any business that use, store and handle a hazardous material or a mixture containing a hazardous material in quantities equal to, or greater than, 500 pounds or 55 gallons; 200 cubic feet for compressed gases; or 10 pounds or more of organic peroxides, carcinogens, radioactive or highly toxic materials, or class 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3 explosives.

In the City of Corona, the Fire Prevention Bureau is responsible for administrating the BEP program. Pursuant to state law, the City of Corona is requiring all businesses to submit a new or update an existing annual Business Emergency Plan electronically.

If you need assistance with the BEP program or have any questions, please contact the City of Corona Fire Department at (951) 736-2220.
