Local Emergency Planning Committee

The Alamance County LEPC was formed in 1987 to fulfill the requirements of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986. The LEPC’s membership is approved by the County Commissioners and includes representatives from facilities, emergency response agencies, local governments, and the community. LEPC meetings are open to the public.

The primary responsibilities of the LEPC are:

  • to receive and maintain reports and other information from entities as required under the EPCRA statute;
  • to perform community right to know activities, including public access to information in accordance with the LEPC’s bylaws and applicable statutes;
  • to develop and regularly review the County’s hazardous materials emergency response plan; and
  • to assess what resources may be necessary to implement the plan and make recommendations regarding any additional resource requirements.
