CalARP CUPA Adopted Procedures

These procedures are similar to the ones used in the Federal Reading Room.

  • At LAFD CUPA Office’s public may access Risk Management Plan, including Off-Site Consequence Analysis (scenarios) portions of RMPs.  Public may read and take notes of any RMP information. However, this information may not be removed, photocopied, or otherwise mechanically reproduced.
  • Public may access OCA information for up to 10 facilities per calendar month, without geographic restriction, by showing photo identification issued by a Federal, State, or local government agency such as a driver's license or passport. Public will also be asked to sign a certification on a sign-in sheet and Confidentiality Statement.
  • Public may also access OCA information for all of the facilities that are located in or potentially impact the jurisdiction of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) where member of a public lives or works.  To access local information, appropriate documentation showing home or work address and signature on a sign-in sheet must be provided.
  • LAFD CUPA’s office is "By-Appointment" Reading Room and requires public to set up an appointment and request RMP Information from specific facilities, located in LAFD jurisdiction, several days in advance. It provides the public with read-only access to RMP Information, including Off-Site Consequence Analysis, for local facilities.
