The Apalachee Regional Planning Council serves as staff to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), which includes Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jackson, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty and Wakulla Counties. The Apalachee LEPC is responsible for implementing the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) through hazardous materials planning, training, exercises and public outreach activities.

The LEPC annually updates the regional hazardous materials emergency plan, which identifies facilities that use, produce and/or store hazardous substances within the Region.




In compliance with the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA), the LEPC:

  • Collects required hazmat facility reports for public access

  • Coordinates hazardous materials training classes and exercises

  • Provides community outreach on EPCRA and Shelter-in-Place

  • Provides technical assistance to facilities reporting under EPCRA

The LEPC maintains a number of public records on hazardous materials and chemicals in your community.  Please contact us if you’d like to know more.
