The Continuous Release Emergency Response Notification System/Priority Assessment Model (CRERNS/PAM) is an integrated database management system and screening level risk assessment model developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Superfund & Emergency Management Division. CRERNS/PAM will assist in implementing the continuous release reporting regulations issued under section 103(f)(2) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended (CERCLA).

The CR-ERNS website provides a data repository for continuous release information, as well as a simple risk calculator and mapping tool for reviewing releases.
