Cuyahoga County Local Emergency Planning Committee

Description of Board and Responsibilities

The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) Cuyahoga County Emergency Services Advisory Board, (CCESAB), serves as the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). On matters which do not impact general emergency planning, the SARA/LEPC functions as an independent county board. Its duties include the development of a countywide plan (coordinated with the CCESAB Board) for emergency response to hazardous materials incidents, receiving and processing required annual chemical inventories from regulated public and private facilities, receiving emergency and written follow-up information regarding spills of hazardous substances and petroleum products, implementing procedures for providing chemical information to the public and enforcing facility inventory and emergency notification requirements.



The LEPC is composed of members representing various public safety entities throughout the County. Members of the LEPC are assigned to the Board by their parent agency.
