About Sagadahoc County LEPC

Authorized by Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), the Emergency Planning & Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) was enacted by Congress as the national legislation on community safety. This law is designed to help local communities protect public health, safety, and the environment from chemical hazards.

To implement EPCRA, Congress requires each state to appoint a State Emergency Response Commission (SERC). The SERCs are required to divide their states into Emergency Planning Districts and to name a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) for each district.

It is the goal of the Sagadahoc County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) to increase awareness of and take proactive preparedness and preventive measures to protect those who live, work, and visit the County from hazardous materials known to exist in our communities. Created by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act of 1986, the LEPC provides support in several ways:

  • Receive, review and process Tier II chemical reports submitted by local facilities who store hazardous substances
  • Provide planning support and technical assistance to local reporting facilities
  • Coordinate and host awareness and operations trainings for first responders and facility representatives
  • Attend public safety events to answer questions and provide resources
  • Keep community members informed of the hazardous chemicals located throughout the County, provide education, and share important Right-To-Know resources

The LEPC serves in an advisory capacity and reports to the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC).  In Maine the SERC is the enforcing body for all Tier II facility reporting. More Information about the SERC can be found here.

The training video below aims to raise awareness of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) to new generations of planners and responders, state, tribal and local political officials, emergency management leadership and the public. It presents a basic level of understanding of the roles and requirements of EPCRA to maintain effective participation to protect communities from chemical accidents.
