Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

The Schenectady County "Local Emergency Planning Committee" (LEPC) is established pursuant to Subtitle A. Section 301 of Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, also know as the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). The LEPC duties include the development and coordination of emergency response plans for chemical facilities within the county. Along with the response planning, the LEPC also develops plans to educate, communicate, and protect local communities in case of a chemical release or other incidents that may occur within the county. 

The LEPC is a community-based organization composed of government officials, emergency response personnel, industry leaders, environmental representatives, media, and interested citizens of Schenectady County. 

The LEPC meets on the third Thursday of each month at the South Schenectady Fire Department.  The meeting starts at 12:15 PM.  The public is welcome to attend.
