WHAT IS AN LEPC?
Local Emergency Planning Committees, or LEPCs, bring together persons and groups involved in chemical release emergencies. First responders, state and local officials, chemical manufactures and suppliers, industry, emergency managers, support agencies, transportation, health and environmental agencies and the public at large all have roles to play in responding to chemical accidents.
A committee appointed by the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), as required by EPCRA, which develops comprehensive emergency plans for Local Emergency Planning Districts, collects MSDS forms, Tier II reports and chemical release reports, and provides this information to the public. Each county participates in an LEPC.
LEPCs were established by Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA Title III) in 1986, aka Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). Tier II Guidelines for Wyoming are located online.
