Welcome to the California Environmental Reporting System (CERS)
To obtain templates, documents or additional information for the APSA Program, please contact OSFM at firstname.lastname@example.org
CAL FIRE Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) has recently launched its new website to comply with state accessibility requirements per Assembly Bill 434. Certain links to templates and documents previously available on the OSFM APSA Program or Hazardous Materials Management Plan (HMMP) and Hazardous Materials Inventory Statements (HMIS) websites have been removed, including the Tier II Qualified Facility SPCC Plan template, Farm Fact Sheet, and Guide on Tanks In Underground Areas (TIUGAs). Access to APSA Program and HMMP/HMIS links, templates and documents located within CERS have been replaced with OSFM’s contact email, email@example.com. To request APSA Program and HMMP/HMIS templates and documents, please send a request via email to OSFM staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once documents are revised to meet accessibility requirements, each will be made publically available by OSFM on the appropriate APSA Program or HMMP/HMIS website.
