Franklin County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)
 
 
Franklin County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is comprised of dedicated individuals from the community that have a true passion for emergency preparedness. The mission of the Franklin County LEPC is to involve the public in a whole community planning effort to prepare for hazardous chemical emergencies. Planning efforts include mitigation, preparedness, commodity flow risk assessment, assessment of local response capabilities and hazardous chemical storage identification.
 
Franklin County LEPC promotes the community's right to know about hazardous materials by:
 
  • Collecting and managing chemical storage data
  • Ensuring chemical storage data is available to area residence
  • Indirectly regulating facilities that store hazardous chemicals by ensuring reporting compliance
 
Members of the Franklin County LEPC ensure a whole community planning effort for hazardous chemical emergencies by providing input and assisting the Franklin County Emergency Management Agency in the development of the Franklin County Emergency Operations Plan (Emergency Support Function #10 - Oil & Hazardous Materials).
