LEPC is an acronym for Local Emergency Planning Committee and is a group of individuals representing local governments, facilities, environmental groups, the media, community groups, law enforcement, fire, EMS, hospitals, health agencies and emergency management. It is a forum for people from all of these areas to come together as a team and accomplish planning. While originally tasked with planning for dealing with hazardous materials, the Saline County LEPC has expanded its tasks to include planning for all hazards that can affect the county.
What are the Committee's responsibilities?
The LEPC is “officially” tasked with establishing plans for the Title III Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness Program for the county, coordinating exercises based on its plans, and serving as the Right-to-Know program’s point of contact for our jurisdiction. We also provide training and exercise programs for our county’s emergency responders and others in various areas.
Who’s in charge of this Committee?
The committee elects a chairperson to serve each year. The chairperson for 2014 is David Burnett, of Schwan's Global Supply Chain, the Vice Chairperson is Hannah Stambaugh, of Saline County Emergency Management, and Nancy Klostermeyer, of The Volunteer Connection, voluntarily serving as the LEPC Secretary. The committee runs itself and makes its own agendas and plans.
How are members of the Committee chosen?
Members of the committee are selected based on their job, their area of expertise, or because they could make a considerable contribution to the overall success of the LEPC. This committee is set up as a forum for all of its members to come together and work as a team to accomplish common goals. Each member of the LEPC is asked to serve and volunteer their time for their community; no one is forced to serve on our committee.
