The Community Right to Know Unit of the Office of State Fire Marshal would like to inform you of a free online tool available for accessing information about hazardous materials storage in Oregon.
The tool is called E-Plan and was developed by the University of Texas-Dallas and supported by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). E-Plan provides a detailed brochure with additional information about its use.
The Office of State Fire Marshal has cooperated with the E-Plan project by providing hazardous substance information collected from Oregon facilities on the Hazardous Substance Information Survey. This information is loaded into E-Plan and is available for use by emergency responders and planners in Oregon. Note: The E-Plan tool is not a replacement of the Office of State Fire Marshal's Hazardous Substance Information System (HSIS). The HSIS continues to be made available for fire service use via the OSFM website.
To sign up and use E-Plan, go to
and scroll down on the page to find the log-in space. Once you have signed up for an account and have received a password, you can log on and type in a facility name. You should select Chris Kuenzi as the authorizing authority for this information. Within seconds, you can view the following:
1. Maps of the area surrounding a fixed facility showing schools and hospitals (The mapping feature uses Google Map, which has some compatibility issues with Windows Internet Explorer.)
2. Chemical Hazards Response Information System (CHRIS) data 3. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
4. Chemical profiles
5. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 704 codes
For specific information about E-Plan or for help using the tools, please go to http://eplannews.utdallas.edu/Training.htm
or contact them at (972) 883-2631.
If you have questions about the data found in E-Plan or need other assistance, please contact Chris Kuenzi at the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal at 503-934-8214 or firstname.lastname@example.org
