Seven states contributed data to NTSIP from 2010 through 2012. If a spill occured within one of those states, the health department collected information about the spill i.e. what was spilled and where it happened. They also collected information about whether any people were harmed. Federal agencies and their partners can use this information to learn more about reducing harm caused by toxic substances.
Health departments in these states also mapped the locations of toxic substances. This includes places that toxic substances are made, stored, used, and transported in the states. Collecting this data helped point out safer ways to manage toxic substances and to more effectively reach out to communities and industries to increase safety and promote a cleaner environment.
