Emergency Services


Call DNREC's toll-free hotline 1-800-662-8802 to report an emergency, 24/7

The Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances is a lead agency for responding to releases of chemicals to the land, water or air that would threaten human health or the environment, like a chemical spill or a fire in an industrial facility.  We also provide:

  • Expertise on how to prevent industrial accidents;
  • Information to other response agencies, like fire departments, on what chemicals they will encounter at an industrial facility, and how to handle them; and
  • Investigation on the causes of accidents.
