More than 1,500 businesses in Buena Park will be asked to provide information on hazardous materials they store or handle as the Fire Department updates its inventory. The department will take six months to develop a Hazardous Materials Inventory Program, which will enable it to take precautions in dealing with accidents and fires.
The businesses will also be asked to develop safety measures as well as plans for handling of hazardous materials. The department is mailing instructions to affected businesses. For information, call (714) 521-9000.
