Mission Statement

lgo_hawaii_doh

Hawaii is represented in the Oil Spill Task Force by the Hazardous Evaluation and Emergency Response (HEER) Office, which serves the people of the State of Hawaii by addressing all aspects of releases of hazardous substances including oil into the environment.  Our work includes preventing, planning for, and responding to hazardous substance releases or risks of releases.  The HEER Office accomplishes this mission by addressing contaminated sites with the highest risk to human health and the environment first, preventing contamination rather than cleaning up after the fact, and basing decisions on sound scientific principles and common sense.
