A Local Emergency Planning Committee or LEPC, is a partnership between citizens, local government and industry to enhance hazardous materials preparedness. LEPCs are mandated organizations that consist of emergency responders, industry, government, education, media and community groups.

LEPCs were established to carry out the requirements of the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (or EPCRA, also known as the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), Title III) and related regulations for emergency response planning. EPCRA helps to provide notification and access to information on chemicals at individual facilities, their uses and releases into the environment.

Local Emergency Planning Committees provide for joint emergency planning, training and public outreach within Bee County, Texas. As a result, communities working with industry are better able to protect public health and the environment.
