Local Emergency Planning Committee

The Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) created a provision for states to establish State Emergency Response Commissions (SERC) and Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs). 

These groups help increase the public’s knowledge and access to information on chemicals at facilities, they also provide an organizational structure through SERCs and LEPCs so that government and communities can work with facilities to improve chemical release preparedness to help protect the public, environment and emergency responders.
