Federal, state, and local emergency response agencies from the United States and Mexico will conduct a binational, hazardous substance emergency response exercise on July 11 as part of the U.S.- Mexico Joint Contingency Plan. The exercise will take place near the Ysleta/Zaragoza Port of Entry, Mexico side, from 10 - 11 a.m. The exercise will enhance response techniques in the event of a spill or accidental release of hazardous materials along the international border.

The U.S.-Mexico Joint Contingency Plan provides a mechanism for cooperation between the United States and Mexico for preparedness, pollution response and other incidents that may cause damage to the environment along the border of both countries.

U.S. agencies participating in the event include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Ysleta del Sur Pueblo and El Paso Office of Emergency Management.

Mexican organizations participating in this event include PROFEPA, Cuidad Juarez Fire Dept and Civil Protection, Mexican customs, CLAM, Federal, State and Local Police Transit, and other local stakeholders.

The EPA’s Border 2020 U.S.-Mexico Environmental Program protects the environment and public health for 10 states on both sides of the 2,000-mile border, including 26 U.S. tribes and seven groups of Mexican indigenous people. Border 2012 seeks to reduce pollution in water, air, and on land, reduce exposure to chemicals from accidental releases or terrorism, and improve environmental stewardship.
