What is LEPC?

Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act, each County in Wisconsin is designated as an Emergency Planning District with a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC).

LEPC membership is broad and includes representatives from:
  • Elected State and local officials
  • Emergency Management
  • Law enforcement
  • Fire service
  • Local health organizations
  • Emergency medical service
  • Local media
  • Community groups
  • Industry
This means local people are making local decisions about how to plan for, train for, and respond to chemical emergencies in your community. The LEPC is the point of contact for the public to receive information on storage / locations of chemicals, types of chemicals, and hazards associated with those chemicals.
