A LEPC (Local Emergency Planning Committee) is a gathering of representatives in your community that have an interest in hazardous materials safety. As a group, you will be tasked with identifying potential risks that your community faces, from chemicals stored in and/or transported throughout your community. The LEPC should seek ways to help minimize the risk, prevent accidents, and assists in the development of plans to deal with a chemical emergency. Education and community outreach are core components of a LEPC. Through the LEPC, the public will be able to seek out information about chemicals in their communities and learn how to safely shelter in place.
