Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

LEPC was established under Act 165 of 1990. The responsibility of LEPC is to receive information about hazardous chemicals, analyze the information, and develop plans for responding to chemical emergencies within York County.

LEPC is comprised of a broad representation of the community including elected officials, law enforcement, the fire community, health and environmental workers, the news media, along with local business owners and operators. These individuals volunteer their time to attend meetings, review plans and provide education to the residents of the County.

LEPC, through the SARA Planning Specialist, assists industries with planning, training and exercises, and coordination with emergency responders. It is through this outreach that emergency responders along with industry, strengthen their ability to respond to real chemical emergencies, in the event that one would occur.

The York County LEPC meets at 10:00 a.m. on the the third Tuesday of every other month beginning in February. The meeting is held at the York County Emergency Services Center, 120 Davies Drive, York, PA 17402. A copy of the by-laws are located here. To contact the LEPC, call our office at 717-840-2990.
