What Are SERCs and LEPCs?

The Govenor of each state designated a State Emergency Response Commission (SERC). The SERCs, in turn, designated about 3,500 local emergency planning districts nationwide and appointed Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) for each district. The SERC supervises and coordinates the activities of the LEPC, establishes procedures for receiving and processing public requests for information collected under EPCRA (The Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act of 1986), and reviews local emergency response plans. In Michigan, the LEPC's are designated by county.

The LEPC membership includes local elected officials, police, fire, emergency management, public health, transportation, and environmental professionals, as well as representatives of facilities subject to the emergency planning requirements. The LEPC develops emergency response plans and reviews the plans annually.  These plans are used by emergency responders when responding to sites that contain reportable amounts of hazardous or toxic chemicals.
