Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

Local Emergency Planning Committee Logo


The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 resulted in formation of Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) across the nation. This includes Midland County.


The initial task of the Midland County LEPC was to develop an emergency plan to prepare for and respond to chemical emergencies. However, the LEPC also serves as a focal point in Midland County for information and discussions about hazardous substances, emergency planning, and health and environmental risks.
