In the event any emission unit, air pollution control equipment, or related equipment breaks down in such a manner as to cause the emission of air pollutants in violation of these Standards and Regulations or a permit, the owner or operator shall immediately notify the executive secretary of the failure or breakdown, unless the protection of personnel or public health or safety demands immediate attention to the failure or breakdown and makes such notification unfeasible. In the latter case, the notice shall be provided as soon as practicable, but in all cases within two working days of the time when emission limitations were exceeded due to the emergency. In the case of emergencies which result in noncompliance with section 24.0537 for air pollution emission sources, compliance with section 24.0537 shall satisfy the requirements of this section.
