|La Porte, Morgan's Point & Shoreacres Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)|
The La Porte, Morgan's Point and Shoreacres Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) works with local government to develop emergency plans and increase citizen awareness of the appropriate actions to take during a chemical emergency.
The LEPC works closely with the cities, schools and community to encourage emergency preparedness and provide shelter in place education to those who live and work in our area. As a part of this effort, the LEPC sponsors and participates in several community outreach events each year. We are always looking for new ways to reach out to the communities in our area.
The purpose of the LEPC is to carry out for La Porte, Morgan's Point and Shoreacres those responsibilities established for the LEPC by Public Law 99-499, Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) Title III, the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, (EPCRA) and related regulations.
