The Emergency Response Notification System (ERNS) is a computer data base containing information on release notifications of oil and hazardous substances that have occurred throughout the United States and have been reported to the National Response Center (NRC), the ten EPA Regions, and the U.S. Coast Guard. Initial notification data may be updated with information from various Federal, State, and local response authorities, as appropriate. ERNS data can be used to analyze release notifications, support emergency planning efforts, and assist decision makers in developing spill prevention programs.
