Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

​​​A Local Emergency Planning Committee or LEPC, is a partnership between citizens, local government and industry to enhance hazardous materials preparedness. LEPC's are mandated organizations that consist of ​emergency responders, industry, government, educational institutions, media, and community groups.

LEPC's were established to carry out the requirements of the Federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (or EPCRA, also known as the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), Title III) and related regulations for emergency response planning.

EPCRA helps to provide notification and access to information on chemicials at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment.

Local Emergency Planning Committees provide for joint emergency planning, training, and public outreach within La Salle County, Texas.  As a result, communities working with industry are better able to protect public health and the envirnoment.


The primary mission of the La Salle County LEPC is to reduce risk and provide emergency response planning utilizing TIER II GIS Mapping & Product Reporting for chemical and/or hazardous material releases. The La Salle County LEPC is dedicated to public education and awareness, especially in local schools.
