ESF 10: Oil and Hazardous Material Response

The purpose of ESF 10 is to identify the internal and external departments responsible for Oil and Hazardous Material Response that may take place in an emergency. This ESF provides and coordinate resources (personnel, equipment, facilities, materials and supplies) to support Oil and Hazardous Material Response during an emergency or disaster.

Concept of Operations

If ESF 10 requires activation, the EOC Director or his/her staff will contact the departments or agencies listed in the annex to report to the EOC or support as needed. The district emergency notification system may be utilized for the notification and recall of groups needed for the function of the ESF. National Incident Management System concepts will be used for all incidents. Incident or Unified Command will be used by responding departments and agencies. When requested, ESF personnel will report to the EOC and utilize the EOP, its annexes and other SOPs to activate and operate during an incident or event.
