CUPA California Accidental Release Prevention (CalARP)
The California Accidental Release Prevention Program (CalARP) is a part of the Orange County CUPA. CalARP was adapted from the Federal accidental release program established by the Clean Air Act Section 112 (r) and modified to meet California's needs. This program requires any business that handles more than threshold quantities of a Regulated Substance (RS) to develop a Risk Management Plan (RMP). The RMP is implemented by the business to prevent or mitigate releases of regulated substances that could have off-site consequences.

The Orange County CUPA implements this program for the cities of Brea, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove and Orange. The CUPA has delegated the responsibilities and management of this program to some of the local Fire Agencies for all other cities. Please contact your local fire department for more information regarding this program and/or additional local requirements.
