> Under Event Extent, what does 'response' mean?

This is an event that resulted in an emergency response of some kind, but for which no injury or death was reported. "Environmental" events are those for which only an environmental impact was reported, but not specific response to the event was described (e.g. a blue dye appears on a water body or unexplained odor is discussed).

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
