Mission

Our mission is to help our citizens, industry and local emergency responders prepare for all hazards by developing partnerships through comprehensive community programs that include the development of emergency response plans, implementation of plan excercises, and involvement in public education programs.

Overview
Each county in Kansas is expected to have a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), comprised of emergency response agencies, hospitals, industries, and community groups.

Responsibilities
Some of an LEPC's primary responsibilities include:

  • Preparing and regularly reviewing their jurisdiction's Emergency Operations Plan, as well as coordinating training exercises for stakeholders on the Plan
  • Collecting information on hazardous materials stored throughout the county
  • Analyzing potential risks to the community
  • Evaluating the adequacy of warning systems and evacuation procedures (as they relate to hazardous material spills / releases)
  • Promoting the community right-to-know law to the public and provide educational materials / resources to the community
