Okanogan County Local Emergency
Okanogan County has formed the
Okanogan County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). This allows the
many agencies which function in both counties to only have to interact
with only one LEPC.
The LEPC was formed to meet the requirements set
forth by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act
(EPCRA) of 1986, also know as SARA Title III. This lays
out several mandates, such as formation of a Local Emergency
Planning Committee and a Hazardous Materials Response Plan.
The Okanogan County LEPC has their plan in place and continues
to review and update the plan as outlined in Washington
Administrative Code (WAC) 118-40.
The Okanogan County LEPC maintains at least one
representative from each of the following disciplines in the LEPC:
(a) State and local officials
(b) Law enforcement
(c) Emergency management
(e) First aid
(f) Health profession
(g) Local environmental
(i) Transportation personnel
(j) Broadcast and print media
(k) Community groups
(l) Owners and operators of facilities subject to
the requirements of Section 302(b) of EPCRA.
