- NOAA's chemical info makes online CAMEO - Web site gives hazmat crews quick 
access to data on toxic substances
By Patrick Marshall

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office of Response and 
Restoration has taken its CAMEO (Computer-Aided Management of Emergency 
Operations) Chemicals database online.    Visitors to the CAMEO Web site, 
www.cameochemicals.noaa.gov, can quickly search a database of more than 6,000 
chemicals. The database also contains more than 100,000 chemical synonyms.      
Each listing provides details on physical properties, health hazards and 
recommendations for firefighting, first aid and spill response. What's more, 
the database allows users to enter combinations of chemicals so the system can 
predict what hazards may arise when the substances mix. more [GCN]
