Comparison: State vs. Federal

· Rules. Hawaii's contingency plan requirements for LQGs and hazardous waste TSDFs are the same as the federal rules, with an additional state requirement in connection with notification. References in the federal rules to "local" emergency agencies, teams, or departments have been replaced in Hawaii with reference to "county" emergency agencies, teams, or departments.

· Administration and enforcement. HDH’s Solid and Hazardous Waste Branch administers and enforces the container rules in Hawaii.

State Requirements

NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

HAR 11-264-56(d)(2) and HAR 11-265-56(d)(2)

Once a contingency plan has been implemented, the federal rules require the emergency coordinator to notify immediately either the National Response Center at 800-424-8802 or the government official designated as the on-scene coordinator for that geographical area. In Hawaii, the on-scene coordinator for the geographical area is from HDH's Hazard Evaluation and Emergency Response Office and can be reached via the state hospital at 808-247-2191 after business hours or directly at 808-586-4249 during business hours.
