Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) must develop an emergency response plan, review the plan at least annually, and provide information about chemicals in the community to citizens. Plans are developed by LEPCs with stakeholder participation. 

The following groups comprise the LEPC:

  • Elected state and local officials

  • Police, fire, civil defense, and public health professionals

  • Environment, transportation, and hospital officials

  • Facility representatives

  • Representatives from community groups and the media

Facilities covered by The Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) must submit emergency and hazardous chemical inventory forms known as Tier II forms each year. In Missouri, forms are submitted to the Missouri Emergency Response Commission (MERC), the Johnson County LEPC and the local fire department.
