Emergency Planning Committee and its role

January 31, 2014
The Marietta Times

Every county in Ohio must maintain a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). LEPC is an organization made up of government, industry and community citizens, and is responsible for receiving, recording, and managing all information pertaining to extremely hazardous substances in our county. The membership of an LEPC must include, without limitation, personnel from each of the following groups: elected state and local officials, law enforcement, emergency management, firefighting, first aid, health, environmental specialists, hospital, transportation, broadcast/print media, community groups, and representatives of facilities subject to the Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 3750.
