The role of LEPCs is to form partnerships with local industries and governments as a resource for enhancing hazardous materials preparedness. Local governments are responsible for the integration of planning and response. There are many steps in this process:

Ensuring a local hazards analysis is accomplished and includes hazmat incidents as well as potential off site effects of facility releases

Including hazardous materials incident planning with local emergency plans

Ensuring hazardous materials response capability assessments are accomplished and shortfalls identified

Enhancing response capabilities through responder training

Developing mutual aid agreements with surrounding jurisdictions

Exercising hazmat response with realistic field exercises and table tops.
