The Anderson County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is a gathering of representatives in your community that have an interest in hazardous materials safety. Members include representatives from emergency management, local fire departments, law enforcement, health care, industry, transportation, public health, and others.

As a group they will identify potential risks that your community faces from hazardous chemicals stored or transported around your community. The LEPC will seek ways to help minimize the risks, prevent accidents, and assist in the development of plans to deal with a chemical emergency.

Another core component of an LEPC is education. Through the LEPC the public will be able to seek out information about chemicals in their community and identify safety plans within their own families.
