CAMEO Software

CAMEOfm home screen imageCAMEOfm is a database application where you can keep track of information (such as chemical inventories and contact information for facilities) to assist in emergency response and planning in your local community.  It is especially useful for managing data required under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). 

You can enter information into the CAMEOfm database manually and/or by importing a Tier2 Submit™ file (if the facilities and/or planners in your state use that program to complete Tier II forms under EPCRA).

CAMEOfm is part of the CAMEO® software suite, which is used widely to plan for and respond to chemical emergencies. From the main CAMEOfm screen, you can access all eight CAMEOfm data management modules—as well as opening the other programs in the suite (the CAMEO Chemicals hazardous chemical database, the ALOHA® hazard modeling tool, and the MARPLOT® mapping program).

Note for Mac users: Some users may see a message saying "'Tier2SubmitB' is not optimized for your Mac. This app needs to be updated by its developer to improve compatibility."
