LEPC helps first responders handle emergencies

August 16, 2014
Marietta Times

A chemical leak, a pipeline explosion, or a fire in one of our many industries. ... Emergencies occur without warning and our residents, communities, and emergency responders need to know what to do should a disaster strike. What role does the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) play in the fire and EMS service? Here in Washington County we have many industries that support our local communities. Within these industries are hazards associated with the manufacture of their products. Hazards such as corrosive and flammable chemicals are an everyday concern for our local emergency services.
