Local Emergency Planning Committee

The Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) directs states, communities and industry to work together to plan for chemical accidents, develop inventories of hazardous substances, track toxic chemical releases, and provide public access to information on hazardous substances. Pro EMS participates in the Cambridge Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) that exists to promote and facilitate the safety of all persons in Cambridge from potential exposure to hazardous materials accidentally or intentionally released into the environment.
