Local Emergency Planning Committee
The Carroll County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) was formed out of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). This law established requirements for Federal, state and local governments and industry regarding emergency planning and “Community-Right-to-Know” reporting on hazardous and toxic materials.
The role of the LEPC is to form a partnership between local government and industry as a resource for enhancing hazardous materials preparedness. The overall goal of the LEPC is to increase the level of emergency planning and preparedness across all sectors of the community. The LEPC accomplishes this goal through regular meetings and effective information sharing mechanisms, as well as coordinated training and exercise opportunities.
Meetings of the LEPC are open to the public. They are held quarterly on the first Wednesday of February, May, August, and November. Meeting participants include representatives of government and public safety agencies, businesses, schools, health care organizations, and non-profit organizations. All community members interested in emergency preparedness are encouraged to attend.
