LOCAL EMERGENCY PLANNING COMMITTEE

The Vernon County Local Emergency Planning Committee (L.E.P.C.) develops and updates off-site Facility plans for facilities in the county that handle and store hazardous materials.  This is in accordance with the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) on hazardous materials.  The L.E.P.C. develops policies, procedures, and plans for responding to hazardous materials incidents in compliance with the requirements of state and federal agencies.  The Emergency Management Department helps businesses with their reporting and compliance requirements on hazardous chemicals.


Through the Emergency Management Office and the L.E.P.C., the community is made aware of potential risks involving hazardous materials.  Hazardous materials incidents range from a chemical spill on a highway to ground water contamination by naturally occurring methane gas.
