Mission Statement

The mission of the Jasper County, Missouri, Local Emergency Planning Committee is to protect public health and the environment by assisting our communities with chemical incident prevention and preparedness; and by receiving, processing and reporting on chemical information received under the community right-to-know laws.


What is the LEPC?
The passage of the SARA Title III: Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act of 1986 mandates that facilities which produce, utilize and/or store certain hazardous materials must report these chemicals to State environmental authorities. This Act has also intensified local governmental authorities' and the community's concern and interest about these facilities.

It encourages these facilities to initiate community awareness about the chemicals they use and to work with local governments, emergency response organizations, and neighborhood groups in developing emergency plans in the event of a hazardous materials incidents at these facilities.

The Jasper County Local Emergency Planning Committee was created on January 23, 1997, with the following purposes in mind: to write a comprehensive HazMat response plan; to receive, record, and publish information from Tier II reports regarding storage of hazardous chemicals; and to monitor Hazardous Materials response and training within the county.
