Previous Process was Paper Based and Resource Intensive

  •   Chemical facilities sent Tier 2 Reports by paper hardcopy.
  •   Administrators would annually file each paper hardcopy into the appropriate folders and then store them into a filing cabinet.
  •   Tier 2 Reports were available only as paper copies to the local fire departments.
  •   Administrators spent hundreds of hours creating manual invoices.
  •   Postage and printing costs were allocated for mailings to over one hundred sites.
  •   Fire Departments had to manually put all Tier 2 Reports together into one consolidated report.
  •   City planners had to manually create the Offsite Response Plans from scratch with little input from facilities.
  •   Administrators had to carefully review the reports due to a lot of facility duplication.
  •   Philadelphia OEM spent numerous hours preparing an annual written Facility and Chemical report required by PENNSAFE to comply with Pennsylvania Act 165.
