  2. Using the occupancyID, run a GET Chemicals request to view chemicals associated with that Occupancy
    • GET https://data.emergencyreporting.com/agencyoccupancies/occupancies/{OccupancyID}/chemicals
  3. Review results, make sure that at least one chemical is returned and make note of the occupancyChemicalInventoryID you would like to update
