Denver Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

What is an LEPC? The Denver LEPC was organized to implement the requirements of SARA Title III of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (“EPCRA”). It is a volunteer committee focused on understanding all hazards in the Denver community and assessing our capabilities for dealing with these hazards.

What does Denver’s LEPC do? Its major role is to work with the private sector, first responders, elected officials, and community stakeholders to promote emergency planning, preparedness and public awareness in the Denver community.   We meet quarterly to discuss safety issues and to hear the public's concerns regarding hazards in the community.  We welcome participation from all citizens and hope to see you at the next meeting.
