The mission of an LEPC can be summarized as follows:
-A response plan must be written for responding to a hazardous material incident with the jurisdiction(s). It must also be reviewed annually.
-Emergency responders (police, fire, emergency medical services, public works, etc.) must be trained to levels indicated in the plan. At a minimum, first responders must be trained to the awareness level.
-The emergency response plan must be exercised at least once a year.
-The committee must create a system to collect, store, and respond to public requests.
