The Delaware County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is currently in the process of updating the Emergency Response Plans for all SARA Title III facilities in Delaware County. This action is necessary to insure compliance with SARA Title III requirements as well as Pennsylvania Act 165 and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) regulations.

The goal of the LEPC Initiative is to enhance emergency management response capabilities, promote strong partnerships between industry, public officials and responders, and to protect the safety of our citizens.

The LEPC has conducted a survey of general information relative to the transportation of hazardous materials and updated facility SARA Title III information.

The LEPC Initiative Coordinators have complied and updated information on emergency contacts, emergency plan information, SARA Title III chemicals, EHS chemical transportation, chemical name, supplier information, mode of and primary routes of chemical transportation.
