The national response center. The number to this center is 1-800-424-8802. Though the response is in their name, they are not a response agency. Instead, their purpose is to be a call center for emergencies. The national response center should be called to report spills, as well as maritime security incidents and chemical releases.

The response center also has a website with spreadsheets. Every year has a spreadsheet with listed incidents. The center has been around since 1974 and was developed by the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan. It is open 24 hours a day.

The national response center-the answer is c.to report an oil or chemical spill, call 1-800-424-8802. an environmental emergency is a sudden threat to the public health, or the well-being of the environment, from the release or potential release of oil, radioactive materials, or hazardous chemicals. environmental emergencies may happen from transportation accidents, events at chemical or other facilities using or manufacturing chemicals, or as a result of natural or man-made disasters. they can be large spills in the ocean or small spills along a neighborhood street. while there are many serious environmental problems epa is concerned with, an emergency response generally focuses on a sudden, immediate threat.
