The Cuerpo de Bomberos, the National Fire Department of Costa Rica, would like to improve their emergency response and preparedness pertaining to chemical releases. We reviewed their procedures for handling chemical releases and proposed the use of a chemical plume dispersion modeling program, CAMEO, developed by the Environmental Protection Agency. We then made recommendations in regards to necessary resources for improved emergency response and preparedness plans along with implementation of the CAMEO software program.
