National Toxic Substance Incidents Program (NTSIP)
Wisconsin participated in NTSIP (formerly HSEES) until 2013. The
maintained by the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry
(ATSDR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and was
a state-based surveillance system with the goal of tracking
and preventing the adverse public health consequences associated with the
uncontrolled or illegal release of hazardous substances.
Under this program, participating state health departments collected data on
releases from many different sources and entered it into a secure
web-deployed data entry system. Information contained in the system
included: event date, event city, event county,
names and quantities of released substances, number of victims, types of
injuries, and numbers of evacuations and evacuees.
