Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

Who We Are…

The Laclede County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is responsible, under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know act of 1986, for the development of Laclede County’s Hazardous Material Emergency Response Plan.

The Laclede County LEPC promotes emergency planning, preparedness, and public awareness, to protect the community from the potential impact of natural or technological hazards of hazardous chemicals and substances, and related disasters.

The LEPC serves as the link between citizens, industry, and government in emergency planning and preparedness for the community.
