 Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC)

 

There are several active Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) in South Central Nebraska. A LEPC is a group of representatives from all parties interested in HAZMAT in a community. They identify potential risks from hazardous chemicals, minimize those risks, prevent accidents, develop effective plans to deal with a chemical emergency, and provide the public with information about events that affect them.

 

LEPC’s consist of representatives from groups and organizations within each community including:

  • Elected officials
  • Law enforcement
  • Emergency management
  • Fire departments
  • First aid
  • Health
  • Local environmental and transportation agencies
  • Hospitals
  • Broadcast and print media
  • Community groups
 
 

Representatives of facilities subject to emergency planning and community right-to-know requirements.
