Created by federal law in 1986, there are currently 9 LEPCs in East Harris County. LEPCs focus on the development, training, and testing of local emergency response plans for hazardous materials incidents, and educate local residents about what to do during an emergency event. A typical LEPC includes industry representatives, emergency responders, elected officials, school and medical personnel and community residents. All LEPC meetings are open to the public.
