Our mission as the Emergency Response Section is to protect public health and to mitigate harm during spill events and environmental emergencies. We plan, train, and respond with local, state, and federal agencies to achieve the best results possible.
The Emergency Response Section is available 24 hours a day to receive spill reports and provide response assistance. The primary role of the section is to facilitate spill response actions from persons experiencing spills to soil and water. The section may also request assistance from the United States Environmental Protection Agency during air release emergencies. Responders are located in the following four IDEM regional offices: Indianapolis, Merrillville, Petersburg, and South Bend.
