Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

Sheridan County’s LEPC is open to the public and we value your input. We meet the 3rd Wednesday of the month, except in July and December, at 3:30 PM in the County Commissioner Board Room.

Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) must develop an emergency response plan, review the plan at least annually, and provide information about chemicals in the community to residents. Plans are developed by LEPCs with stakeholder participation. The LEPC membership must include (at a minimum):

  • Elected state and local officials,
  • Police, fire, civil defense, and public health professionals,
  • Environment, transportation, and hospital officials,
  • Facility representatives, and
  • Representatives from community groups and the media.

If you have questions related to LEPC please reach out to the Sheridan County’s LEPC chairman Steve Small at (307)752-1321 or by email Sherlepc1@vcn.com
