Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) were established by the Federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act, as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986.

LEPCs must develop an emergency response plan, review it at least annually, and provide information about chemicals in Madison County to citizens.  Plans are developed by the LEPC with stakeholder participation such as local fire departments, police departments, hospitals, local health departments and fixed facilities who house chemicals. 
By law, the LEPC must have at least one representative from each of the following categories:
1. State and Local Officials
2. Local Environmental Group
3. Law Enforcement
4. Hospitals
5. Local Government
6. County Government
7. Transportation
8. Fire Service
9. Broadcast and Print Media
10. Emergency Medical Service
11. Community Groups
12. Health Department
13. Owners and Operators of facilities subject to Section 620.50 of the State of Illinois EPCRA Rule 

The Madison County Local Emergency Planning Committee meets on a regular basis throughout the year at different locations.  For the schedule of meetings contact Madison County EMA
