Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)
The Cuyahoga County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is a coordinated planning group comprised of individuals who have knowledge and awareness to the planning and response to incidents involving hazardous materials.
"Our mission is to educate, inform and assist regulated facilities and the public in Cuyahoga County in protecting people and the environment from hazardous material releases through hazard reduction, accident prevention, and emergency preparedness."
Some of the main duties of the LEPC includes: receiving and analyzing annual chemical inventories from 900+ chemical facilities, maintaining the County Hazmat Plan, performing hazardous analysis profiles for select chemical facilities, working with the County Hazmat Teams, bringing in hazmat-related training courses, conducting an annual hazmat exercise, responding to public records requests, and much more.
The Cuyahoga County LEPC meets six times a year, see our meeting schedule below. Meetings are open to the public, please feel free to join us! All meetings are at 1:30pm at the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District at 4747 E. 49th St in Cuyahoga Heights.
