Local Emergency Planning Committee
It is the LEPC’s job to identify and work with these facilities to insure they are reporting on the hazardous materials that are housed within their facilities and have plans in place for their response to a chemical release within their facility. LEPCs must develop an emergency response plan, review it at least annually, and provide information about chemicals in Monroe County to citizens. Plans are developed by the LEPC with stakeholder participation such as local fire departments, police departments and facilities who house chemicals. The LEPC also increases hazardous materials safety through public education, emergency planning, responder training, conducting exercises and reviewing actual responses to releases.
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every quarter. (January, April, July, October) All meeting are open to the public in accordance with the Open Meetings Act. Agendas will be posted at least 48 Hours prior to the meeting. Meetings are held at the Monroe County Courthouse Room 14 (EMA Office) at 7:00 p.m.
