Local Emergency Planning Committee

Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) must develop an emergency response plan, review the plan at least annually, and provide information about chemicals in the community to citizens. Plans are developed by LEPCs with stakeholder participation. There is one LEPC for each of the more than 3,000 designated local emergency planning districts.

Aroostook County’s LEPC meets several times a year and works together with local first responder agencies as well as many facilities, businesses and other partners to develop a Emergency Operations Plan.

For more information, please contact Aroostook EMA at (207) 493-4328.
