In 1986, the U.S. Congress passed a law called the "Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act," Requiring every county in the nation to form and maintain an LEPC. This group supports emergency planning for chemical hazards and provides local government and the public with information about possible chemical hazards.

The Tarrant County LEPC is made up of representatives from state and local government, emergency management, fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, environmental groups, education, media, community groups, transportation and facility owners and operators.
Our next meeting will be held on February 13, 2015.  Click here for meeting details.
