Reporting Hazardous Material Spills

From industrial chemicals and toxic waste to used oil and pesticides, hazardous materials are part of our everyday lives. Hazardous materials are substances which, because of their chemical, physical, or biological nature, pose a potential risk to life, health, or property if they are handled improperly.

Reporting a Spill

If you observe the release of known or suspected hazardous materials, please call the Los Angeles County Fire Department at 323-890-4000. Timely cleanup of spills can prevent hazardous materials from being inhaled or from entering storm drains.
