What does EPA expect from an Emergency Coordinator at a RCRA covered facility?
Q. In the event of a hazardous waste spill, what are the responsibilities of an emergency coordinator under RCRA?

A. The emergency coordinator is responsible for coordinating all emergency response procedures at a RCRA facility and has the authority and control of resources to carry out the contingency plan. As a result, the emergency coordinator must be thoroughly familiar with all aspects of the facility's contingency plan, all operations and activities at the facility, the characteristics and location of the wastes handled, the location of all facility records, and the facility layout. Finally, the coordinator must be an employee who is either on the facility premises or on call and able to respond quickly to an emergency situation (40 CFR Section 264/265.55).
