The purpose of the Chicago Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is to provide oversight and management of provisions of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA Title III), and the Emergency Preparedness and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986 in Chicago. Our mission is to provide inter-agency and organizational planning for the emergency response to hazardous materials.
The committee’s intent is to represent member agencies and organizations and the community’s interests. Members include: elected state and local officials; law enforcement; civil defense; firefighters; first aid; public health and health care organizations; local environmental organizations; hospitals; transportation; broadcast and print media; community groups; owners and operators of facilities subject to the requirements of the Emergency Planning and Right-To-Know Act.
The Chicago LEPC meets quarterly. Officers are elected annually by the LEPC membership.
