The LEPC meets every second Thursday of the month.
The LEPC must include, at a minimum, elected state and local officials, police, fire, civil defense, public health professionals, environmental, hospital, and transportation officials as well as representatives of facilities subject to the emergency planning requirements, community groups, and the media. The LEPC must establish rules, give public notice of its activities, and establish procedures for handling public requests for information.
Emergency Response Plans
The LEPC's primary responsibility is developing emergency response plans and reviewing them at least annually thereafter. In developing these plans, the LEPC evaluates available resources for preparing for and responding to a potential chemical Accident. The facilities for which these plans must be written are those that have extremely hazardous substances (EHSs) on site in amounts above certain thresholds.
