About the Local Emergency Planning Committee:

The Anchorage LEPC seeks to uphold federal, state, and local laws pertaining to emergency/disaster planning and Community Right-to-Know reporting. The Anchorage LEPC is administered by the Municipality of Anchorage Office of Emergency Management.

We have committee members from the Municipality, UAA, the media, community groups and local healthcare agencies.  It is important this group is diverse in order to validate emergency plans are fully developed and implemented. 

The LEPC is a requirement by Federal Law and Alaska Statute due to an industrial accident in Bhopal, India
