Nashua Local Emergency Planning Committee

Required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) are charged to develop an emergency response plan, review the it annually, at the minimum, and provide information about chemicals and hazardous materials in the community to citizens. Plans are developed by LEPCs with stakeholder participation. Nashua’s LEPC meets monthly, and has members involved in all forms of city government and critical facilities & services.

Goals

  • Understanding risks posed by chemicals.
  • Managing those risks.
  • Reducing those risks.
  • Ensuring the broadest possible public representation in the decision-making process.
  • Ensuring that an emergency response plan lays out potential local hazards, response capabilities and procedures to follow in an emergency. The planning process may identify opportunities for reducing risk.

Agendas 

LEPC agendas are available to view in the Agenda Center
