Abstract:

The Chemical Hazard Response Information System CHRIS is designed to provide information needed for decision-making by responsible Coast Guard personnel during emergencies that occur during the water transport of hazardous chemicals. CHRIS also provides much information that can be used by the Coast Guard in its efforts to achieve better safety procedures and to prevent accidents. CHRIS consists of four handbooks or manuals, a hazard assessment computer system HACS, and technical support personnel located at Coast Guard headquarters. These components and their relations to one another are described in Section 2 of this manual.
