NRS 445B.560 Plan or procedure for emergency. 1. The Commission may provide by rules and regulations for alert, warning, and emergency standards and abatement procedures relative to air pollution episodes or emergencies constituting, or likely to constitute, an imminent and substantial danger to the health of persons. 2. Any person responsible for the operation of a source of air contaminants which is designated by the Director shall prepare and submit emergency plans for reducing or eliminating the emissions of air contaminants during such periods of air stagnation or air pollution episodes or emergencies as may be declared by the Director. The emergency plans shall be subject to review and approval by the Director. If, in the opinion of the Director, an emergency plan does not effectively carry out the objective of reducing or eliminating the emissions of air contaminants during periods of air stagnation or air pollution episodes or emergencies, the Director shall disapprove it, state the reason for disapproval, and order the preparation and submission of an amended emergency plan within the time period specified in the order. If an approvable Proposed Nevada Revised Statutes ASIP, submitted to U.S. EPA February 2005 7 emergency plan is not prepared and submitted within the time period specified in the order, the Director shall issue an emergency plan applicable to that person. Persons subject to the emergency plan shall obey the plan during periods of air stagnation or air pollution episodes or emergencies declared by the Director. The provisions of NRS 445B.360 with respect to appeals do not apply to this subsection. 3. Any other provisions of law to the contrary notwithstanding, if the Director finds that a generalized condition of air pollution exists or that emissions from one or more air contaminant sources occur and that the condition or sources create, or are likely to create, an imminent and substantial danger to health requiring immediate action to protect human health and safety, the Director shall order persons causing or contributing to the air pollution or responsible for the operation of the source to reduce or discontinue immediately the emission of air contaminants. Any person subject to the order may appeal directly to the district court or request a hearing before the Commission. 4. This section does not limit any power of any other state officer to declare an emergency and to act on the basis of such declaration.
