The Goochland Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), operating under Goochland County Fire-Rescue and Emergency Services, is a volunteer organization with interested individuals from local businesses, county agencies, and local citizens working together to become better prepared for emergency situations that could happen within the county, in a place of business or in an individual’s home.
The LEPC was originally established as a requirement of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA), also known as Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). Our committee works directly with Goochland’s Emergency Services to support this Act to ensure our locality is prepared to respond to a hazardous materials emergency situation. Since 1999, Goochland’s LEPC has expanded its efforts to be prepared for all hazards, including but not limited to hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, etc.
- Elected state and local officials
- Police, fire, civil defense, and public health professionals
- Environment, transportation, and hospital officials
- Facility representatives
- Representatives from community groups and the media
The LEPC meets at least once a year. Meetings will include guest speakers / training opportunities. Look for meeting announcements on Goochland County Fire-Rescue Facebook page.
