The Montgomery County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is a mandated committee with membership from business and industry; emergency response groups such as fire, medical and law enforcement; community groups; media; hospitals; environmental interest; universities; and the general public.
The mission of the LEPC is to effectively plan for emergencies involving hazardous materials. The LEPC is tasked with the responsibility for SARA Title III Environmental Compliance; HAZMAT training and exercises; Site-Specific Chemical Planning Program and maintenance of the county-wide Hazardous Material Response Plan.
The primary responsibility of the LEPC is to receive information about hazardous substances from industry and to use this information to develop comprehensive site emergency plans to handle emergencies. In addition to the hazardous materials responsibilities, the Montgomery County LEPC has taken an “All Hazards” approach within this committee by looking at other potential threats within our county and communities. We work to mitigate, plan, coordinate, educate and exercise all hazards through this committee as a team to strengthen our efforts regarding public safety. Other “All Hazard” threats we have focused on to date are:
- Active Shooters
- Hazardous Materials
- Mental Health
- School Safety
