Statewide Local Emergency Planning Commission (LEPC)

On July 1, 2021 Vermont consolidated 13 separate Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) to one statewide LEPC to carry out the requirements of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA). The statewide LEPC will focus on identification of hazardous materials that pose a risk and evaluating the available resources for preparing and responding to a potential natural or manmade disaster that could result in the release of hazardous chemicals.
